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).

Took my 8 & 9 year old boys here after visiting the Science Museum and the play area conveniently located next door. Next time we come over we will plan to spend the whole day in this area which can be done with the three attractions conveniently located together. They had a blast. So many diverse activities that we ended... More

My wife and I took our 2 year old granddaughter to the MS Children's Museum recently. I had heard it was very nice, but was surprised at how great it really was. All very interactive and appropriate for children from 2 to 12. This will become a place we visit each time our granddaughter visits us! I would recommend that... More

The faces of my two grandsons light up whenever I tell them we are going to this museum. They love it and there are sooooo many fun things for them to physically do. Two weeks ago when we were there, the outside garden play area was having work done. There is already a big treehouse built for kids to climb.... More

This is a great place for kids, buy a season pass and go everyday if you want to. Kids are so excited to learn, play, explore and create here. I've been hundreds of times and my grandsons have never once said "I'm bored, let's go". There is coloring, arts, crafts, books, costumes, mazes, water fun, outdoor fun, indoor fun, race... More
