School trip to children's museum

It's a great place for kids of any age. I would highly recommend going to the Missisdipi Children's Museum.

I took my 4 year old daughter there and it was great. She had so much fun learning about different things. It was truly amazing to watch her climb and learn how to work with the gears and the smile on her face when she created a puppet and did a puppet show. It is truly amazing and well worth... More

There is so much for the kids to do here. We spent hours just sitting back and letting the kids explore. We love it but wish that they were open on Mondays too.

My 12 yr old had fun here, and we played all of the games. He was really a little too old for most of it, but we had fun anyway. Any kid younger would have a blast!

I think I was a bigger kid than my kids (and my nieces and nephews). The giant Scrabble board would have kept my sisters and I entertained for hours.

Our three year old had a good time. There was plenty to do and all very educational. At times it felt like people weren't watching their children and play got a little rough. Other than that, I'd rank it ahead of most children's museums. Our three year old had a wonderful time.

Woah, Mississippi has a Children's Museum on the rim of a prehistoric volcano? How many different ways can I say cool. I'm a grown up and this place had my playing like a child.

What a wonderful place for children of all ages! I had as much fun as my grandson! It is obvious that the museum was very well planned, and there is much attention to detail. I highly recommend it!

We like to visit different places, and this place was amazing. There was so much to do that our kids didn't get to all of it. We could have come back another day easily b/c our kids just played and played.

I went with my mom and a friend and 2 children ages 1 &1/2 and 3. We enjoyed ourselves so much! This was my 2nd time to go. Mind you I'm almost out of my teenage years and I do believe I had more fun than the kiddos! Great place! Family atmosphere. I highly recommend this place to anyone ages... More
