Great place for a day with you children

When our grandchildren come to visit this is one of our go to places. It's hours of fun. What we like best are all the hands on things for kids to do.

Took my Granddaughter earlier this year and was surprised by the amount of things for Children to do. They have Police and Fire vehicles kids can play in and a full size 18 wheeler. Good experience

We took our 15 month daughter and she LOVED it. There was so much to see and do. She was drawn to the slides, the Whole Foods Market and the Kid Zone. Loved all the interactive play and all the different career zones. We went on a very hot day so we didn't check out the gardens but looked nice... More

Took my 4 yr old grandson and we had a blast. The grocery store was just so much fun, he had his little grocery cart full to overflowing. I guess he had always wanted to shop for himself because when I started putting items back, he said "I need everything". There is the most amazing selection of interactive things for... More

My granddaughter LOVED this museum! In fact, she cried all the way to the hotel when we left, and has talked about nothing else since. This surpassed the trip to the NC Zoo in her book because she had so much fun role playing and seeing all their exhibits. The price for a Sunday visit was just right.

We took our 2-year old grandson twice in the one week we were in Greensboro, and he loved it - constantly said "Wow!" This is a perfect place for ages 2 - 8...9 and 10 year olds are right on the edge of being bored here as I witnessed with families with multiple age children. This has an enclosed play... More

This museum is more like a huge play area with section after section after section for the kids to play. My kids are 6 and 8 and we had to drag them out at the end of the day. Don't forget to let them play in the garden!

Great place to bring children of all ages. If you have several children of a variety of ages, it would be easier to have more than one adult. Then the younger children can go to the Tot Spot and the older children can go to the Grocery Store, Fire Truck, bubble area. My kids always had a great time!

Lots of stuff doesn't work. Not really impressed. We won't be back. We expected there to be more for the price.

We received a family membership to the museum for Christmas and have used it regularly since then. Our daughter is now 20 months old. Lots of stuff there is over her head for now but she still loves it! It's not really like a museum, more like a giant play area. It has toys like giant foam tinker toys, magna... More
