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...

We were looking forward to visiting this museum with our little one and were a little disappointed with the outcome. This place has great potential but it needs a bit of sprucing up. We had intended to spend more time at this place but after being there for only an hour we decided to leave. The grocery store was poorly... More

My 8, 6 and 2 year old loved this place. Fun for all ages and nicely put together. You can pick apples, milk cows, learn the water cycle, play in the trees, explore a cave, and more. A great place to spend 90 minutes and let the kids burn off some energy before piling in the car for the rest... More

My son loved this place and I loved how clean it was and how it was not geared for just older kids. Great place,
