My children are 5 and 9 and they loved it. So much to do and see. The water room was a hit and the mock grocery store. This is a great place for kids and I will be back.

We like to go to children's museums when we travel and this was the best of any we've seen (including Denver, OMSI in Portland, Seattle). Our kids didn't want to leave after 4 hours and were begging to go back the next day. They really enjoyed Eco City, where they could work a job, collect a paycheck, and put it... More

I recently took my three year old to the Children's Museum in Las Vegas. We arrived at opening and enjoyed a wonderful first hour or so exploring the exhibits. There are plenty of things to do and occupy a three year old from a Pirate Ship to a Fairy Castle, dressing up, water play and so much more. On the... More

The staff here go above and beyond to interact with you kids. They seem to really just enjoy children - what a joy! My 5 year old and my 2 year old loved every part/every floor of this exhibit. It's easily one of the best Children's Museums I have ever visited - and I have been to over 10!

Make sure you bring a change of clothes as even with the ponchos provided the kids get totally soaked at, guess what's first thing they see, the water play.

Wasn't sure if my almost 10yr old would enjoy this place - but glad we went! Floors are sorted by age so we spent most of our time on the upper floor as well as in the unique Summit. The top floor has a "Solve It - Mystery Town" where the jr sleuth has to gather clues buy assorted hands... More

We spent a great time here with our 6 year old son and 11 month old daughter - it's a huge improvement on its predecessor. The layout seems a little chaotic and their scheduling of activities seems odd as there are clashing events on different levels at the same time, on occasion our family had to split so my son...

Lots to do and keep little hand busy. We were here for about three hours and lots to do. From a pirate ship on the 1st floor to the climbing attraction in the middle. With the climbing attraction there is something to see on every floor. The staff is great, lots of one on one interaction. My boy enjoyed it... More

this place was a mess. it seemed disorganized and wild. but perhaps this is the way these kinds of museums are. the kids enjoyed it so I guess that's all that matters. it seemed to me more like a giant indoor playground
