My kids had a big time. Some of the things were broken & didn't work, which was kinda disappointing. They really enjoyed the music room. More for younger kids (6 & younger).

Really happy to see the Jackson area get a Children's Museum. It's small, but enough for children up to around 11 or 12. Both of my kids always had a great time visiting.

My children are 7 and 6 and they are getting bit too old for most children's museum where most exhibits are for preschoolers. We stopped by expecting to spend couple of hours there. 6.5 hours later I had to practically drag the kids out.... More

I am from Clinton, MS; however, I live out of state now. Although I love home I often find that Mississippi does not provide a lot of recreational activities. When I visited the Mississippi Children's Museum I did not have high expectations; however, I was presently surprised. The museum is awesome! The staff is very polite and friendly, and the... More

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!
