This has tons of hands on activities for kids. Also sound scientific learning, plan on a few hours, great for kids 10 and under. Don't miss it!

We went with our 5 year old granddaughter and had a blast. Apparently they have cleaned the place up and repaired displays. There were staff through out the two stories helping, picking up and cleaning. We got there about 11 and left to have lunch close-by at 1. We returned and stayed until they closed. There weren't many kids later... More

My children range 8-3. I think this museum has a lot to offer the younger guests. There is an emphasis on pretend play. They have a market and cafe, as well as steam boats and police cars the kids can play in. My 3 year old twins loved it! They spent an hour in the market and cafe. In addition,... More

This is an amazing place for children. When my grandson visits he always asks to go back to the museum. There are so many things for him to do. He adores the boats he can climb into. Plus i love the New Orleans theme. My only wish is that the museum have exhibits that are interactive for the both of... More

I took my 9,7,5, and 3 year old here on the coldest day of the year. We spent the entire day there, taking our time at each exhibit. The price is a reasonable $8.50. I was not impressed with the "daily events", they were either poorly done or no one even showed up. It is definitely geared toward the 10... More

Enjoyed out visit to the museum today. It was a good stop considering it was 40 degrees outside and we could kill several hours inside with our kids. The price of $8.50 per person was a bit high considering that it isn't very unkept inside and they are in need of maintenance. We have three children, 11, 8, and 5... More

I have a membership to my local children's museum, which is very small, but the staff are overly friendly and engaging so I use it as comparison. I found it great that my local membership card got me a network discount to the museum, so that was a plus. I also found the museum to have a large amount of... More

I have been to quite a few Children's Museums, and have to say that this is one of the more comprehensive museums i have been to. There are quite a few interactive exhibits and there is fun for the whole family. Definitely a must do if you have kids to entertain in New Orleans.

My kids, ages 3.5 and 5.5, loved our recent visit. My friend came with us with her son who is under 2 and he was engaged in every section also. Favorites were the boats, you can load and unload cargo and be captain ans crew; grocery store was beloved bc the registers print actual receipts. Kids loved how real it... More
