We go there with our grandsons, age 8 and 4, and they are thoroughly entertained for hours. Staff is very pleasant and exhibits are a lot of fun.

My 3 year old loved this museum. I loved it too. Much of the museum is broken up into little theme rooms. We were able to discuss different times in american history with the kids.

Had the pleasure of coming for the first time for a birthday party. This place is great! Our 4 and almost 3 year olds had a blast. The skill stations, play areas, and silly stuff had the kids worn out after an hour and a half. They loved all of it. The outdoor area is really nice and the history... More

We were loitering around the brown university and then finally said lets go the kids museum. Best decision made. Got time to get the kids hungry and enjoy their journey

I did look it up on the internet but did not see any warning that it would be closed so we were disappointed that we arrived at the Children's Museum on Monday to find it closed so we ended up at the Zoo and enjoyed it.

Hi I believe this musem is a great place to come with the family and enjoy the day. This museum is very fun and educational at the same time. In the warm weather it has the out the play area. On some days you can get in for free I think is Fridays.

My family comes here once in a while and they love the water room. My husband has a great time upstairs with our 7 year old and the woods play area is great for the baby which also have a seat where I can nurse my baby.

The best Children's museum we have seen so far! It is very compact, yet has many various activities. All my kids ranging from 2 to 6 y.o. found something to do for 4 hour visit. Just beware: the museum does not serve food, and all cafeterias within walking distance close at 4, so bring your own lunch!

We brought our two and a half yr. old grandson here today. Will definately return! Could easily spend the entire day there. Lots of hands on learning and playing. Easy to find, right off Rt. 95, with free parking ( though limited...we got there when they first opened ). Bring a lunch, as there is no food service ( though... More
