“nice place for kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Overall nice place for kids to play, but didn't get why adults have to pay for ticket if the attraction is for children.

“Excellent place to let the young kids play!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Fabulous, clean, fun, great place for a rainy day out of the house, or a kids birthday. They do a good job hosting party groups here. Ages 2-6 are ideal.

“Foggy days, rainy days even sunny days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We just love Monterey County Youth Museum. It's a great place to bring the kids and know they are safe to play and engage with all the exhibits. Great staff that gets the kids involved, too. Live music on Thursdays 10-10:30am that is totally interactive and fun.

“Great place to explore with little ones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This is a great indoor place to take little ones. Tons of different areas with lots of intereactive themes...They have lots of climbing structures, a mini ambulance and operating room with a full size operation game. A theathre with costumes. Our 2 and half year old loved it. Inexpensive fun in a clean indoor area. They even have a craft area.
