I go to many museums with my grandchildren & my hometown children's museum is the very best I've visited. It's entertaining and educational at the same time. They have fun special events every day throughout the museum that are geared to different age groups. My only complaint is keeping older children out of the toddler area. I understand this can...

It started with us getting lost as we went to the old museum. Called up the new site and they enthusiastically gave me directions and they were precise. It helped that there was a car garage connected to the museum and we drove in for free. Parking was ample since we got there first thing. This was a newer museum... More

They have moved and the GPS took us to the wrong place and scary side of town. Finally got here and didn't know that the parking garage was attached to the museum and was free to park in. $12 /person to enter. Small place, 3 stories high and had lots of things to do. Water play area, theater, climbing areas,... More

My husband, me, and our 3 & 5 year old girls really enjoyed our day. We stop in Vegas for a night to break up our trip from LA to Utah (visiting family) so we are not in Vegas to see the Strip or do most things at the large hotels. We spent about 5 hours here & the kids... More

This attraction is fun for the younger set. The activities are definitely geared toward younger children, and parents must stay with their children at all times or the attraction workers will track you down! It makes it difficult for the children to climb the play structure freely as an adult must follow behind. I could see this being a problem... More

We have an annual pass here and the kids love it! They maintain their exhibits well and the staff is extra courteous! They have a toddler area that is fun for the younger kids and then areas suited for older kids as well. They do not sell food but have a snack area for you to eat food you bring... More

This wonderful museum is heaven for children from 2-8 yrs. Almost everything is hands-on including a "Water Works" room that includes raincoats and drying fans. There are many rooms to explore such as the Veterinarian's Hospital, the Jamba Juice Fast Food area, the grocery store, and the airport where one checks the suitcases. The climbing structure is 6 stories high... More

My sister in law, who lives in Las Vegas, told a that there's a newly opened interactive children's museum in Vegas. So when we planned our trip to Vegas, we're from Los Angeles, we added the museum on our list. My 3y/o son had a wonderful experience especially in Water world. It's the first adventure you'll see when you enter... More

After reading some good reviews, we decided to take our 2 year old there and beat the heat. First off, we felt that the $12 pp (1 and up) fee was a bit high. The parking in the structure was free, though. I felt that most of what they have in this "museum" is stuff that I could do with... More

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.
