Although not a large children's museum, this place has many fun and educational activities for kids. We've been here several times, and the museum has added several new exhibits. We typically spend about 2 hours visiting the museum, which is enough for the kids to play in all the activities. The cleanliness can improve, and the museum would also benefit... More

My four year old grand daughters are jaded New Yorkers and they adore this place. Grocery shopping and food isa are their favorite, although drawing/craft areas, and the dress up house area, and the slide are favorites too. Magnets. Books. Soft toddler area. Train. Motorcycle. Group offerings. Grandparents, parents and kids all were quite pleased to play and explore here... More

We've been visiting this place whenever we've brought our son to Tucson, and this visit (the almost-final stop on our Big 2015 Road Trip) was a good as the rest. Our son built a wooden go-kart, successfully operated on a broccoli, and had much fun in all the rooms.

The staff is extremely friendly and very hands on. We have gone to the phoenix children's museum and this was a way better experience. Will be enjoying this place again. The only crappy part was parking. All the parking is metered and with a 2hr limit. I was there for 3 1/2 hours and parked at a structure downtown. Would... More

It's smallish, but well maintained, and in the heart of downtown Tucson. It's worth it when they have a discounted admission rate. Still unsure why they charge the adult for going through.

The kids (ages 4, 6, 10) had a fun time exploring all the exhibits and rooms. There was plenty to do for each of them and we spent a delightful several hours there. I would definitely recommend this museum when visiting Tucson with young children.

Very fun place for kids! Lots to see and do and if you go during the right time you can get in for $2 per kid. Not bad!

This is a children place really good to spend all the hours the kids want. The kid was really amazed, but the adults have fun too. We take the 3YO and he didn't wanted to leave. Grandpa was there too and had as much fun as the kid. There are too many cool things to list here. Totally recommendable place.

My 4 and almost 2 yr old Grandsons love it here. So many fun hands on things for the kids to do. Their favorite is the grocery store, with pretend fruit that they can "pick" off the tree, little carts to push around to collect their groceries, a smoothie bar and a check out area with cash registers. So many... More

We took grandchildren ranging in age from 8-2 and the youngest didn't want to leave while the oldest had seen and done it all in only an hour. Great train running around several rooms and some indoor play equipment for the little people.
