This place has it all we went for a birthday party and had a blast. There is so much to do that you can easily spend hours exploring and enjoying yourself. It has a many things to do for young and old there are separate areas for the very young ones.

We expected this museum to be a smaller-scale version of a big-city children's museum. We took two 3-year-olds and were thrilled to discover that, in fact, it was better than a lot of the museums we have visited. Typically in these types of museums, the majority of the displays are broken - because of all of the wear and tear.... More

We took extended family , ages 4-74, and every one had a great time! It is all hands on, from lying on a bed of nails to brain wave competitions. The staff presentations were well done. They are about 5 minutes long, but full of flames and smoke machines!

A bit spendy but lots and lots to do for kids. Even brings out the kids in adults. Very informative and will take up a solid half of your day. Special exhibits are extra.

There was alot to do and the kids enjoyed the hands on! So many different things to do, some for all ages of kids. Spread out nicely so no one gets run over and the stations were not too crowded. Pricing is good. My grand kids appreciated the different live animals on display. Some were things I had never seen... More

Took the family there for a friends birthday party. We had a private science show that was awesome. This place is a real treasure for Little Rock.

We visited with my grandsons, 2 and 4 years old. They were completely immersed in the system of air tubes downstairs, at first watching older children and parents insert different colored scarves into the different entry ports and watching them zoom all through the tubes, in different directions based on which way valves were set, and rocketing out over their...

What an adorable place! We stopped here on a cross country trip so the kids could have some fun and get their energy out! They had a blast! It was easy access off of the Route 40. I learned a lot about Arkansas natural history from the visit. There were a few live animals and they had all of their... More

I go here every time I am in Little Rock and it never disappoints. The changing exhibits are always interesting and the regular ones are always fun to go back to. At one point they offered a coupon for free kids meal with adult purchase at the nearby Boscos restaurant, but I cant remember if that is still going on.... More
