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.

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

We took the grandchildren (age 1 and 2) to the museum just this week. A brand new area for children under four, opened that day. The children were able to enjoy so many activities. I hesitated going to the museum with such young children. I can tell you, we will be back very soon and often. This place would take... More

Designed for younger children our 4 and 5 year grand kids love this place. There are tons of activities and hands-on things to do in this downtown museum.

We have been bringing our grandchildren to the Children's Museum for many years. The oldest child is 6 and he agrees to come along peaceably with us from Sierra Vista to Tucson for shopping and sightseeing, as long as we include the Children's Museum in the day's agenda. We have a membership, which allows us to bring as many of... More
