Took the grandkids to the Mississippi Children's museum and they loved it. The museum has activities for kids from very young to pre-teen. There's a replica of a riverboat they can climb around in as well as most of the usual stuff for this type place. Be sure to take appropriate shoes if they want to play in the "dancing... More

The children's museum is fun and interactive. There are many versatile areas (exhibits) for children to play ranging from the ecology of Mississippi to the human digestion. The farmer's market has produce that you can scan and information is shown on the screen. The music area caters to the performers in music, dance and theater. There is a lot to... More

My son had a great time, and so did I. It cost about $16 for both of us which is a great value for 3-4 hours of fun (or more if you/your kids are that energetic!) We also ate lunch in the cute little cafe and I had the flatbread chicken pizza... It was fantastic! My son had nuggets and... More

There is so much to do. Do not think you will be in and out. We had to make them leave after 3 hours. The paint splat picture, dancing, build your car to race were just a few things. Both 10 and 5 loved it. They told me over and over how much they loved it. It was worth the... More

I have taken my grandchildren who ranged from two to twelve years of age. They all loved it. It is clean, educational, and just plain fun. The only down side is that there is so much to see and do they don't want to leave!

A colorful bright learning experience for kids at play. Don't miss it if you have little ones. Fun for the adults to watch.

My husband and I were driving from New orleans to Kansas City. We stopped off at this museum to tire out our 19 month old son, so he would sleep thru the night while we drove overnight for 11 hours. We got there after 1pm, admission is $8 per person and then feel free to let your kid choose where... More

My husband and 10yr old visited the museum while I ran the marathon. My son raved about this place for 3 hours! He especially like getting "eaten" and going though the human intestines. My husband said it was educational without my son knowing he was learning - LOL. They also had lunch there and enjoyed it but I can't comment... More

Based on several people's advice, I purchased membership the first time we visited and have not regretted it. Have been 3 times in less than 6 months and will be returning very soon. I should point out that I live 3 hours away but my kids will ask to visit the Mississippi Children's Museum frequently. Even after 3 visits, we... More

We were really surprised by the Mississippi Children's Museum. My dad and wife did some research and found good reviews before we went, but we never expected the place to be the size and quality that it is; especially for the low $8 entry fee. There is a TON to do - we were there five hours with kids ranging... More
