My boys love the Children's Museum! They have a great staple of play areas for kids of varying ages and abilities. They have a nursery area for little creepers so even the littlest kids can get out of the stroller and explore. There are lots of hands on stations where kids can build and create freely. There are plenty of... More

It was fun and of course educational. There were so many activities we will have to go again sometime soon. A very accommodating facility. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Great little museum, lots of hands on and energy using activities. Will definitely go again. i will bring a change of clothing as the water area was great, but very wet. they have an adult night that my 23 year daughter is eager to attend. The activities were intriguing for us adults also.

I'm not that fond of the children's museum. It seems to cater more to adults than kids and the exhibits which are fun and exciting switch so often it is disappointing to visit. We were members for a year and found that after the 3rd visit, my son only wanted to play in the car or the water room which... More

Two kids and two parents, well-entertained and somewhat educated after spending half a day at this museum. Frankly, if we hadn't had a birthday celebration to attend, we could've stayed longer. Pack spare (dry) clothes unless you plan to avoid the third floor water feature. The kids LOVED it, and they were soaked despite the waterproof aprons provided. It was... More

I originally thought that this museum was just for small children, but there are so many activities that are geared towards older kids as well. Actually kids of all ages. Lots of art and hands on experiences.

My kids are 8 and 14 and this was perfect for them. We have visited other children's museums and this has so far been the best. Worth the admission. We spent about three hours there and that seemed about right.

This is a decent children's museum for younger kids. My kids were 12 and 9 which was a little too old for this place. I would recommend it for kids 8 and younger. They have a nice art area where kids can paint and sculpt and get real creative. They also had a number of different interactive attractions enough to... More

We took the grandchildren, age 2 and 4 to the Childrens Museum in Pittsburgh. It was wonderful. We spent hours there. The children played and played. On one floor they have water exhibits, the kids will get wet, so bring extra clothes or a swim suit. The exhibits were very good. Of course, this is Pittsburgh and they are great... More

This is such a great museum. There is so much to do for kids of all ages. There is always a special section that they rotate every few months, so it never gets old. They also have a lot of unique play areas that wear the kids out. My favorite is the Mr. Rogers tribute area. A great value in... More
