Great place to bring the kids. We had a great time with a bunch of kids and adults. There are a lot of things to do and the only thing I would say is a negative is that it is so big it can get hard to keep track of everyone :)

This place would be nicer with a little TLC. It is dirty and most of the exhibits are broken or empty. Considering this pricy for what you pay. Still it was a nice place to take our 4 year old for some kid time away from the hustle and bustle of our trip. The staff are young and very lazy... More

My four year old fun had a blast!!! He loved the super market and that the cash machines actually worked and printed a receipt!!! Amazing! The diner was cool too! We were there for story time where a lady read a book about obey and gave out play money as she read! Very cool and interactive. Some of the displays... More

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!! They have the shopping center and the restaurant, eye doctor, a little house that is kids size!! Lots more than I mentioned. I have been to several childrens museums and a lot of the stuff... More

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
