What an awesome experience. Even for an adult! As a grandma I totally enjoyed the thought process that one had to come up with the museum. My granddaughter and great granddaughter have a wonderful time. The parts of the body, shopping for food, being able to sit on a motorcycle, standing in an ambulance and playing EMT, driving a fire... More

My grandchildren, ages 5, 6, 9 & 12 L-O-V--E going here. The new improvements that have been made add to everyone's enjoyment. We used to especially enjoy the Member Theme Nights which had special events and refreshments, which is why I renewed my membership for a couple more years. Seems they have chosen not to schedule many of these any... More

Very interactive, and fun for the whole family. Well kept and plenty of things for the little ones to do. I loved the bubble being able to stand inside a giant bubble!! Spend a whole day in this children's treasure. It's nice to have a place where kids and be kids. Nothing is off-limits.

Took grandkids over a time span of 5 years. Initially, it was a fun experience. Our last visit was a dysaster. Seemed very few exhibits were working. Really felt "ripped off". Kids have no desire to go there again.

We are grateful for your support of the museum for the past 5 years. However, it sounds like you had a different experience during your last trip in December of 2014. We would like to learn more about your visit, specifically which exhibits did not meet your expectations. Please feel free to contact me directly at 547-0032 or Autumn@childrensmusuemtucson.org.

Visiting grandchildren in Tucson we were looking for something to hold their interest more than five minutes. The AAA Tour Book gave this a decent review. Parking in downtown Tucson is like most cities, scarce and you have to pay. The price seems a little pricey for what you get. Some science items, playrooms, and the like. The boys were... More

My kids (aged 4 and 3) really enjoyed their visit - hands on learning in about 1100 square feet of space. I will say that this summer at least, the $2 admission on Sundays is well worth the value!
