We don't get to come to the Children's Museum often, but spend quite a few hours when we can. There is so much for the kids to explore from how to pump gasoline in the car to how construction equipment works to art classes and playing instruments. It's a wonderful way to have fun and watch the kids learn! For... More

This was a cool and safe place to bring your kids. There is indoor and outdoor fun complete with a vegetable-herb garden. My kiddos absolutely lost their minds in there. No one wanted to leave. We visited on a Sunday that had 2 birthday parties booked so there were quite a few children, however, it was still very pleasant since... More

Our girls, ages nine and seven, just loved this museum. It has a number of different areas for play and they just ricocheted around having a blast. We particularly liked the learn about MS area and the new literary garden. Wish we'd had more time!

This place is awesome! I wish I was a kid again to take advantage of all the adventures here. There is a plethora of learning possibilities here for the young ones. I was here just to check it out and even through I couldn't play on most of the exhibits I saw the value of this museum. It is right... More

I took my 3 year old and 12 month old to the museum. I had to pay $10.00 per person. Yes that's $30.00. Other than that there is lots to do. The staff was friendly. Some areas were missing items. I went on a weekday wasn't to crowded. Very clean and educational. I was just a little aggravated that I... More

If you haven't visited the new addition you need to revisit. It is an extremely well put together and interesting addition to a great museum. Kids and adults love this museum!

My kids are 9 and 6 years old. We go to the MS Children's Museum two or three times a year and sometimes bring friends or my niece. The kids always have a blast no matter their age, and we're there for at least 3-4 hours when we go. It's very interactive, all of the exhibits are well-maintained, and they... More

Excellent way to spend a day with children of any age!! I myself, an adult, love spending time crawling through the gopher holes.

Could have spent the whole day there. I went with two children (7 and 11) and neither wanted to leave. Much of the museum does cater to the younger age group, but there are plenty of exhibits to keep older kids (11, 12 or 13) engaged (as well as adults who are still kids at heart).
