We picked this museum as a break from our trip from ny to pa. It could be that my kids are just too old..but they were very bored. Not much to do and the stuff seemed outdated. I guess for the price it was worth it or if you have younger kids

This is a nice small gem in New York, reccomend to take the free Staten Island ferry across (get to see great views of the Statue of Liberty and of Manhattan) short bus ride or taxi ride to the museum that is situated in a garden complex with botanical gardens next to it, great place lots of things for kids...

It used to be better Now they have many stifling rules and regulations The Museum closes early and on most holidays. Although we have an annual membership - it's not of much use.

This attraction wasn't even on our NYC shortlist but after a tiring morning we noticed an advert for a future event just as we were boarding the Staten Island ferry. A quick bit of internet research and a return ferry for lunch at Brooklyn Bridge turned in to a snack in the ferry terminal and a short bus ride to... More

some of my friends introduced it to me, i went there with my baby who was one month old. There are lots of sunshine and grass for children to play with their family.

Excellent day trip out of Manhattan for families travelling with children. Snug Harbour is a woooonderful place, so much culture, beautiful gardens, green house, chineese gardens, concert hall, arts center and of course the childrens museum. A free ferry ride from Manhattan at South Ferry and a very short bus ride to Snug Harbour. DEFINITELY worth a visit.

We enjoyed this interactive hands on museum. The Staten Island Ferry is free & the price of entry is good. Lots of fun to be had by all for all ages.

I would advise to go with kids before they become teens. Ideal age would be from 3 to 10. A lot to do inside, room to run and play outside. Snug Harbor, where museum is located, is surrounded by fields, gardens, and other museums. I used to bring my older son there every 6 months. Now, he is 15 and... More

I have been going here with my kids for the last 14 years. Near all transportation, alot of free parking and easy access for wheelchairs and strollers. Very educational and the exhibits are changed so there is always something new to experience. No food, except for vending machines and tables inside. Fun and inexpensive activity to do.
