I went during the rain and this was such a great place for the grandkids to play. We enjoyed playing doctor , but most of all shopping for groceries. Grandkids are 4 and 2 years of age and there was plenty of things for them to get into and run around. Perfect rain day!

My kids could have stayed and played all day! It's new, it's clean, and there's plenty to see and do! We will be visiting again for sure. I would have never known about this place if it weren't from a groupon.

There were activities that each of our grandchildren enjoyed. In all, we were there over two hours and never did any of the three ask when were we leaving.

Exciting fun for young children. There was lots to keep my son's interest. He enjoyed shopping in the mock store walking around choosing items and adding them to the basket.

My daughter of two years loved the museum. She asks about once a week to go to the "muzem". Lots of creativity and lot of thought went into the wonderful place!

You can't wrong with a day spent at the NB Children's Museum. There are different rooms/stations which keep my kids busy and entertained for hours. The highlights for them are the grocery store section, and the outdoor water station. While it's totally worth it, I only gave 4 stars because of the price. $7.50 per person (adults and kids) is...

This Museum is small but the little ones love the variety of things to look at and explore. From interactive to hands on my (2&4) year olds stayed busy for 3 hours. I LOVE they had a crafting room with a daily craft as well...

This is no Thinkery but we did enjoyed the two hours there. It is not so big (like Houston CM) so kid can go through everything and enjoy them.

This is a great museum! Very interactive exhibits for health, space exploration, camping, ranching, and so much more. Great "water table" exhibit outside and a super cute mini-playground. Fun percussion music area outside as well (grown ups had fun on this one, too). This is a must visit if you have small kids (ours were 18 months to 9 years).
