This place has been around for years and it REALLY shows. Most of the exhibits are broken or missing stuff, the place looks like it hasn't been cleaned in ages( the bathrooms were AWFUL and the cleaning lady was always on her phone) and I've seen MICE and INSECTS inside the building! Disgusting!! I know the area isn't without it's... More

This establishment opens at 9:30AM. The cost is $8.50 a person. The bottom floor is mostly for the younger children. Go upstairs... Lots more fun!!

Great place to take the kids and to beat the heat. Kinda pricey but with the amount of time we stayed inside it wasn't too bad.

My kids had a blast here. Loved doing the craft and had plenty to keep them busy. Nearby parking lot is expensive.

My daughter loved this place, especially the play cafe, which was well stocked with everything you would find in a cafe, the Winn-Dixie, and the construction activities. 'Jooleus' has a point that the young staff at Wynn-Dixie were hopeless and more interested in talking to each other. We were there early and they turned a blind eye to our trolley... More

We went here as kids (over 20 years ago) and loved it. Since we were going to be in NOLA a couple days with our one and a half year old and knew we needed something indoors to do during the day, we went here. We have a membership with our museum at home, so we got in free. They... More

Wow. Where did the glowing reviews come from? The staff? This place is borderline deplorable as a children's museum. Many of the exhibits do not work. Of those that do, a number of them can't even be used by younger children because they require a lot of strength - nearly adult strength. The bubbles exhibit is filthy and in terrible... More

We had a few hours with nothing specific planned, so I took my son here. Was able to use my Pink Palace membership from Memphis and got in FREE. Son had a blast playing on all the different areas and things. His favorite was the replica of the front of a streetcar and the boats.

We had so much fun with two eight year old little girls! We can't wait to goo back! The girls especially loved shopping for groceries and checking each other out while my husband and i enjoyed the pulley systems most! Fun learning at its best!

What a local treasure, the whole museum has a great local theme of boats and the river history of Nola. From building houses to painting and just plain fun there is plenty to keep younger kids busy for hours.
