The day I took my daughter the place was so chaotic I almost turned around 1/2 way through the door. I heard such great things so I thought we would at least try. My 18 month old was basically run over by all the "big kids" just running all around. It was hard to find a quiet place to play... More

We were going stir crazy while visiting relatives in Buffalo and wanted our 3yo to be able to not only burn energy, but also get a little social interaction with kids his own age. This place came up as one of the top 10 indoor places for kids in/ near Buffalo so we decided to give it a whirl! First... More

A lot of their exhibits are broken or falling apart. We went on a day where they had activities going on and it seemed very unorganized.

I love love love this place. It's more than just an inside play park. This place actually encourages kids to learn through play. It fosters creativity and imagination. I wish there were more places like this. It's appropriate for younger children maybe up to age 6 max. The prices were so reasonable.

After reading the reviews of EAM I thought it would be worth a visit with our 15 month old daughter as she loves to explore...and more !! On first impression I was surprised when it was in essentially an industrial unit, after getting lost inside the corridors we walked in and it wasn't what I expected..it really looks like a... More

So many things for a young child to experience. From building their own little house to playing different musical instruments. A true fun day can be had here.

This children's museum is small, but filled with fun activities for kids. It's cheap ($5/per person) and the kids love to spend the afternoon there. It is best for kids under 8, but the older kids might learn something, too. Birthday parties are affordable here also. There is no food or drink in the main area, but there is an... More

We absolutely loved this little "museum". It kept our kids busy for several hours; we stayed until close and we could have easily stayed for longer. My daughter spent most of her time in the kitchen and vegetable stand area whereas my son did lots of building and activities with balls. It was very unique - unlike any other museum... More

This place is awesome. We have been members for several years and our children love it. The best ages are 3-8. Older kids get bored easily. I appreciate the small size because kids tend to run and in this museum, even when they take off, they won't be going very far! I just wish they had restrooms in the actual... More
