Reasonably prices at $5.50/person for all day admission. Will even let you leave and come back during the day for no charge if you show your receipt. Fun for kids. My 11 year old enjoyed it as well. There are mostly things for young children, but my older child had playing with his siblings and really enjoyed the space part... More

We received free admission as a Christmas gift, so we stopped on our way through New Braunfels this past weekend. The museum is very nice. It is definitely aimed more towards smaller children, but my 8, almost 9, year old had a blast anyway. I really loved the dr's office layout and the outdoors area. I would recommend going. It...

My grandchildren love to go to this museum! My youngest is 16 months and she loves it! Many things for her to do. The others are boys ranging in ages 3-8 and they love so much about the museum. They really love the water activities outdoors. There are so many things to do and a very hands on place to... More

I would recommend this for children 6 years and younger. My grandchildren really enjoyed it and they are 2 and 4.

Lots of interactive fun for younger kids. Wished parents didn't need to pay to get in since it is totally geared for younger children.

I am a grandmother of a 5 yr old. He is a wonderful child as long as he has something interesting to do and feels stimulated. I love this child but he is so full of energy. McKenna's Museum was the perfect spot for him. Upon entering I wasn't sure how long we would be here. My little guy need... More

My kids loved this place! It isn't huge, but that was a good thing. The kids could run around and explore their interests and it was easy to keep an eye on both of them. Love this place !

As a grandma with a six year old grandson and a two year old granddaughter I give a big thumbs up for the McKenna Children's Museum. The creators of this colorful, educational and fun venue have thought of everything. From a children's bank with an ATM dispersing play money to use at the life-like store next door to the kid...

I took a 4 year old and almost 2 year old and spent several hours! We had a great time playing! Museum was clean and everyone shared activities. We left for lunch then returned for more fun!

This is a great place to visit with little ones, as there is a variety of activities to do! We had a 4 year old and a 1 1/2 year old with us and they both were worn out by the time we left. There is a water area to play in outside, a musical section to bang on, a... More
