It is overpriced. Better museums for children this age with more age-appropriate things in Raleigh and San Antonio are newer and less expensive! The one area designed for ages 6 and under she could enjoy was overrun by older children. They tried to take things out of her hands. Not pleasant.

What a great place to take your family of all ages! There is so much to explore. So many hours of "hands on" learning to play with. I believe there will be more scientists developed because of this wonderful place!

We take our grandsons here several times a year and they always enjoy it. It is in the River Market district, a lovely area of downtown Little Rock.

This is a great children's museum. Our 4 year old granddaughter loved the dinosaur display so we went several times during our stay. They also have science type classes that are fun.

Loved all the hands on activities and live demonstration. I saw a lot of adults enjoying themselves. All the exhibits were in working order. Good luck if you find free parking. Street parking is only an hour at a time. A school was there when we went so it was packed. The loudness and waiting behind kids were the biggest... More

Very fun time for the kids. I think even the adults learned something. They always changed up the projects on display so it is always something interesting to see.

Bottom line, if you have kids and are in the Little Rock area, stop here for at least a couple hours. We have a 5 and two 3 year olds and they all had a blast. The exhibits are just the right mix of educational and fun and just about all of it is hands on. My son loved laying... More
