Our grandson and granddaughter love this place. Even our preschool has field trips here. We were members one year and had a 3... More

Today we visited the Mississippi Children's Museum. Our party included me (the mom), my 4yo twin boys, and my mother-in-law. What a great time we had! The boys loved this place! From the many climbing activities to the musical fun to the library to the construction/farm zone, we were fully entertained for 3 hours. The weather was less than ideal... More

Great place to take children! A lot of fun and entertainment for a couple of hours for children. A great space for birthday parties & offers a PNO every now and then. A few of the exhibits are even informative for adults.

The museum is laid out very well, clean, and fun for the kids! It is a little on the expensive side though, in my opinion, especially at $10 each for parents. Kids enjoyed it, but won't want to go back for another year or two.

They have just opened the new gardens and there is even a slash pad out front. We are members and go as much as we can - my children even attend their... More
