Such a wonderful museum. The exhibits are so well presented and what felt like a really small space better suited for younger kids turned into a delightful time for all of us. The bank and the kitchen/diner thrilled my 9 and 12 year olds

The layout and function of the upstairs is very cool, the downstairs could use some improvements. They have a large bubble maker that gets other items slippery. Some stuff animals and items are starting to get worn out. They over charge for a children's museum. I think parents should be free. I've gone a few times and when they have... More

My family had the BEST time at our last visit to the Children's Museum!!! We aren't yet members, but only because we live a good distance away. The staff is amazing!!!! For a group of mostly teenagers they are mature and BEYOND helpful!! The suggested activities are great for quieter days, but on busy days, my kids (who are 3... More

Don't be confused by the name. This is not a museum. It has play areas for kids roughly 6 and younger. Each area/room has a way for kids to play using their imaginations. There is a grocery store, a post office, a diner, a bank, a stage with costumes, etc. Each area is filled with props to help the kids... More

This is a great museum for a young mind. Children 6 years of age or older may be uninterested. Even the website recommends children 7 or under. My visit was brief. My 5 year old was occupied briefly by each exhibit. I believe I would have made it a better visit if I had a fried along for the day.... More

My grandchildren love it here. We go at least once a year when they visit. It's for younger children, probably no older than 6 or 7.

The children' museum is fantastic and fun. It offers a lot of opportunity for children to explore and use their imagination. We have had six birthday parties there and they have all been fantastic:) great job!

I had brought my two year old to explore the museum and was surprised of all the fun things to do. There is a giant firetruck upstairs as well as other places for children to expand their imagination such as a diner and bank. They even had a program going on for babies at the time with things to crawl... More

The kids (ages 4 and 1) loved this place. There was a lot to see and do. It was nice to go to a "museum" where kids are encouraged to touch and play with everything. Some of the museum could use some updating as parts are showing their age (more so downstairs than upstairs). Admission is $6 a person, including... More
