Hands on, i.e., kids can sit on a big motorcycle that has lights as fire truck and ambulance have plus sirens. Tubes that flow air to support ball in air, building blocks, electric light bulb that kids crank to light up, balls that float thru air tubes were enjoyed by our five year old granddaughter.

I was lucky enough to go here with my friend and her 2 little bundles of energy. There was plenty for the kids to do. There are many hot days in Tucson when a parent wants to keep the kids engaged indoors. I would recommend the Children's Museum for younger children. Not only is it good for growing minds, but...

The name of this attraction sounds a bit uninviting for those with childrens, but this is a treasure for children. Yes, it is a museum, but a totally hands on museum for childrens. An absolute delight! A great place for grandparents looking for a place to entertain grandchildren without breaking the bank! A must go for children!

We only had an hour here which was not nearly enough! Super fun place where kids can just play, use their imaginations and learn. Our kids (ages 10, 7 & 3) could have stayed all day!

The Children's museum is great inside a true asset for our kids, however it is located in the ghetto, I took my daughter there on several occasions. While walking accross the street we had to dodge two bums staggering on the side walk, and another sleeping ata bus stop near by. I wish they would not have built it in... More

This museum is not particularly large, but presents a good combination of arts and sciences with materials appropriate to a fairly wide range of ages.

We took our Granddaughter there and were very shocked at the location. There were alot of homeless people walking around asking for money etc. The area was not attractive, meaning, area was dirty not where you expect a childrens museum to be located . Inside was great our Granddaughter is 11/2 yrs old and she had a wonderful time. I... More

It's not anything earth shattering, but my 3 year old doesn't need earth shattering. There are plenty of activities to keep him preoccupied for a few hours and I don't mind the atmosphere either. They also have plenty of events that may or may not offer free admission, so it helps to check what's going on frequently!

It's a good indoor activity center for young children. Wish it was a little bigger with more activities but what is there was enough to keep the kids busy for about 2 hours. I think the entrance cost is high but if you do the membership for the year it will pay for it's self if you use it. My... More
