It was great, the kids loved it more than I can express and there is a ton for the kids to do!! My kids loved the giant telephone man and the face painting station and the place where they could build rockets and airplanes and launch them!

Terrific place to bring the children and plenty of interesting things to occupy any adult, difficult to see everything in one trip so multiple trips could be the way to go. Spent lots of time building with the Lego's, there are entertaining educational shows, and so much to see and do....

Definitely worth it if you have kids but equally enjoyable for adults. Lots of fun things to do, touch, climb for kids of all ages. The outside space is Also great when the weather is nice. The museum is free Thursdays after 5 pm.

We have season tickets so that we can take the kiddos for an hour or two each time. We have been several times and they enjoy it each time. Very interesting pieces and shows.

It's a great museum- puts all other children's museums to shame. So much to do- explore a fake city complete with grocery store, bank and restaurants that are all child-size. There's a section for arts and crafts and lego construction.

We have been taking our son to this museum since he was 2 and now he is 10. Its still as exciting and fun as the last time. By changing out some of the exhibits, it keeps it fresh but the loved stand-by exhibits are always there as well. I would recommend for kids 12 and under.

Have taken my son and now my grandkids to The Children's Museum. Such fun and so many activities for all ages and interests. Especially great at Christmas time for a Santa visit. When Santa is not sitting and listening to kids' Christmas lists, he is walking around through the museum handing out treats and stopping and talking to kids one... More
