We brought our two kids, ages 1 & 4, and it was great. It's setup like a little town on one half. There's a carousel, water table, outside area and also some "caves" they can explore. They both liked it and it entertained them for about 2.5 hours. There's also an outside splash pad that we didn't visit bc we... More

This is good place for S.T.E.M.A. Our science workshop was great, our teacher taught the kids a lot about chemicals. They were truly amazed.

My son and I went here a few times. First we went to the main museum downtown. Then we went to the one in Midlothian. I liked the Midlothian museum better than the one downtown. It was less crowded and had a better layout. My son seemed to have a good time but got bored easily and wanted to leave.... More

For the price, you really can't beat it. $8 per person, and kids can play all day! Not only that, but they are learning as well. Their summer hours just started, so they stay open until 7 on Saturdays, not 5. My only gripe is that they should have a little cafe or someplace to get real food inside, instead... More

I have been to several Children's Museums and this one has particularly pleased me and my family. It offers good fun activities and great learning while giving children a chance to go behind the curtain or act as an anchor or pretend to be a teacher and more. This place is worth multiple visits with kids.

Took my Grand-Kids who were in town visiting, it was a rainy day and cold, so this fit the bill. It was OK, kids ;liked proabably the first hour, but after that, BORING!. Other kids were left to run wild by their parents, the water areas were a disaster. We were there all of about 2 hours.

My wife and I have brought our kids to multiple children's museums across the United States of America. We thought that this one was a pretty good one and our kids loved it. They have four locations, but we only visited the main location during this visit. The main location has an area for children 3 (?) and under, an... More

Great play area for younger children, some unique exhibits, all interactive. It was raining so we did not see the outside area. Lots of things for children 6-8 and younger to do, I do not feel it would keep the attention of older children very well. Excellent price point compared to other children's musuems I have visited.

We have visited several of the CMOR locations. The Chesterfield location was great for my one year old as it is very open with lots of space to move. The toddler area for three and under is nice although that part isn't as good as some of the other locations. The bus and fire engine were awesome. She loved the... More

Interactive, huge area, different focused age group areas, clean, well staffed and a cool place to let the kids wonder around, while participating in hands on experiences! Subtle lessons learned in each area while the kids have a blast! Parents/Grandparents can observe and watch from close by everywhere the kids want to go and still participate or just observe, The...
