This was great! So many things for the kids to explore and it definitely beats the heat and humidity. It is inexpensive and the store is nice for travelers who wish to purchase souvenirs

Very surprised of the large space and how the children can interact. My grandchild had a ball. Some items in gifr shop were overpriced.

I took my boys 7 and 5 years of age to the children's museum and they loved it. They really enjoyed the boat play area, the animal puppets, the restaurant play area, and the super market play area. They had hours of fun here. The facility was clean and the staff was polite and helpful.

The rate of admission is quite pricey (same for adults and children). The exhibits are neat, but filthy and not explained well. Most of the exhibits don't have enough pieces to complete the activity. Very dirty - thankful for hand sanitizer dispensers. Bubble exhibit was closed, grocery store exhibit was blocked off but other kids were in there playing. Would... More

We took our 2-yr old there for a couple hours during the hot afternoon and he would have stayed a lot longer...so may thinkgs to do. He liked the litted train layout on the first floor the best. We even bought him a little train set to play with there. Great for preschoolers in a learning environment.

Our 8 year old LOVED the Louisiana Children's Museum! He got busy "makin' groceries" (that's New Orleans for "grocery shopping") and cashing out at the cashier. Then he got to wait tables and serve his Daddy in the Kids' Cafe! We were especially pleased to use our membership with Sci-Port back in Shreveport as a part of the ATSC reciprocal... More

I have 2 under the age of 6. This place is awesome if you want to keep them occupied in air conditioning. It was a little crowded, as the were summer camps visiting, but that didn't keep the staff from being extremely nice and helpful. The art room was a lot of fun. Will definitely come back if we're in... More

Kids love coming here. Its always a good time. Educational. Staff is minimal. Pieces are missing from some of the exhibits and some areas are not sanitized. I have been to other children's museums where staff is constantly disinfecting hands on exhibits. Kids spread germs like wildfire. Its a fun place to go on hot afternoons, just make sure to... More

The place was dirty. It was like teenagers were employed there and not doing anything for upkeep. I went home and gave my son and myself a bath. If I ever go again, I will bring a box of Clorox Wipes. Besides the filth, the exhibits were interesting and my son loved the grocery store and restaurant. I guess because... More
