Very pleasant, we was able to take our coats in scarves of and hang them up as soon as we arrived, didn't have to haul the coats around. The toddler area was safe for our 12 mo old to roam freely as we observed, he couldn't run through the whole museum, due to the white picket fence that went well... More

Kids love this place, as well as parents and grand-parents. Plenty to do for the kids. It's fun and enlightening at the same time. My grand-kids have a ball.

This was our first time visiting. I was a little disappointed in how other parents watched (or didn't watch) their kids. I spent more picking my 2 year old up after she got pushed over by a 7/8 year old who was playing in the same area. There's a small kids area, almost feel like there should be a toddler... More

This museum is small, but it's the perfect size for my two year old twins. The exhibits are appropriately aged and the staff was always around to clean up (with a cheerful demeanor) whatever my little ones were throwing down! The train was a favorite, I wish they ran it all day! I was so satisfied with my experience that... More

My sister and her boyfriend gave us the tour of Richmond and since we have a 6 & 8yr old, they took us here. My boys had a great time and didn't want to leave. A lot of activities for them. Good time

I visited with my twin 4 year olds on a Tuesday afternoon. The exhibits were designed nicely, and the place was large, but it was all so poorly maintained that it got in the way of the fun. Three exhibits were closed for repair (sun tubes, apple orchard, and dairy cow). The dinosaur dig didnt have enough "soil" to cover... More

I visited this museum with my daughter, her husband, and grandchildren ages 6 years and 16 months. There were many attractions for them and they ran around enjoying everything, and in exactly 2 hours they were done and ready to leave. They have been to many children's museums in VA and said that this one had lots of potential but... More

Smaller than other children's museums we have been to in other cities, but, for it's size, our kids still had a great time and say they would like to go back. Has a kid size 'city' with businesses like a grocery store, bank, tv station and school. Has stuff they can climb and slide on, an art room and water... More
