The Children's Museum here in Tucson is great, good for old and young alike, Kids love it as they can touch and relate to most of it, Lots of hands on for them. And from an adults point of view it is a great way to interact with them and have fun doing it!

An odd cold and rainy day in Tucson guided us to the children's museum. Our son had a blast. So much to see and do. He was running from room to room with pure excitement. Very reasonably priced admissions. Great for about two hours tops. Looks to be a fun place to have a birthday party. Not sure how often... More

My 3 children ages 1-8 enjoyed this museum. It is hands-on with a variety of activities. The first hour was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, multiple school field trips showed up at the museum. The museum was way too crowded. I would recommend to call ahead and see if any school groups are scheduled to visit before you go.

We took our five year old and eight year old grandkids to the museum. They had fun except when older kids and a school group basically pushed them out of the way even with two adults standing nearby. We saw younger kids physically knocked down by rowdy older kids so if you have very little ones, just be prepared. We... More

We visit our granddaughter, husband and great-granddaughter in Marana several times a year. when we were there last year we bought them a 2 year membership! Well worth the money as they go frequently and we always make it a "must" when we are there. GGD loves it, especially the "kitchen"....she cooks for us, puts a baby doll to bed... More

This was an OK experience. Two hours on the parking meter was long enough. It's a little pricey for non members - $8.00 a head. Fun to do once with a visiting 5 year old. At these prices only one adult will want to accompany the little ones. Watch out for older rowdy kids hanging out at the outside exhibits.... More

we visit my parents in Tucson a lot and go to this museum just about every time. I love how interactive everything is and love that it is clean and my 2 year old had plenty to do wasn't geared too high of an age so he could enjoy all the stuff!

It was easy to get to and found parking. We only had 2 hours but it kept the kids busy for the whole 2 hours and probably could have stayed another 2 hours. There were some building toys outside as well. The place was a mess, they could use more staff to help pick up after the kids. Everyone was... More
