This is one of our favorite Children's Museums. There is always enough to keep our kids engaged. Our 9 year old daughter was thrilled with an art lesson, son & daughter enjoyed a cooking class while husband played with our toddler in area geared for her. Perfect!

Oh my goodness your children will love this place if they like to tinker or be hands on with learning. My kids had a blast and want to go back soon. I'm actually kinds sad I couldn't do everything they were able to do. I want an adult version of this please!!!

My kids had so much fun here!! So much to do. We could have easily spent a whole day here. They have a nice little cafe with decent prices and choices. They also offer crafts and everything is hands on.

A friend and I took our one year olds to CDM and it was a lot of fun. We spent a good amount of time in the area meant for babies and toddlers, and they were very entertained. We also checked out all of the other exhibits, and although they are intended for older kids, the babies enjoyed looking at... More

This museum is one of the better Children's Museums I have visited. It is a little older but it still has experiences that delight children of all ages. Be careful not to overlook things! My youngest child adored the bees that had a clear hive on the window when she was 4. I didn't think we were ever going to... More

So much fun! The kids could spend all day there- especially at the water exhibit. The exhibits upstairs change all the time, so check out the website.

My kids have been here several times over the last few years, and CDM has never disappointed. There is always something for everyone to do - kids under 4 area, small events like hula hooping or small animal experience in the atrium at intervals throughout the day, cooking and art classes, science magic shows, and a weekly Nature trading post...

Although it is not a huge museum, there is a great variety of exhibits that kept my three and five year olds entertained for hours. There is a small area for toddlers that was also fun. Our favorite parts were the art and music areas - very engaging and educational.
