“Magical day with Grandson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We have three grandkids, ages 2, 3, and 5. After our recent visit to the New York City Kids Museum we were completely surprised and impressed with the quality the Glazer Museum. Perfect for this age group! The staff was plentiful and attentive and very professional with rhe kids. Had a quick lunch at the Subway on the first floor, then were back at it for more fun. We bought year passes and plan to return often.

“workers are zombies”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

No help or assistance with question. Its good to go ONCE and NEVER RETURN. I asked questions and the workers acted like they didn't want to be bothered. ALl they want is your money...They did not act very friendly towards our kids eather. They acted like they didn't want to be bothered and were annoyed by our questions. NOt good customer service esp. towards children. They need to hire new staff that.

“Good spot for rainy day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Good place for 8 and under. Older kids will likely get board. Got many educational exhibits and place is very clean.

“Fun, but Pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I would have given this 5 stars, except it seemed to cost a little too much. Kids are $9.50 each, and adults are $15. Like most of these places, it really pays to get a family pass if you live in the area. A family pass would pay for itself in a couple visits. As tourists, that wasn't an option for us.

My daughter (8 years old) was at the older end of the age range that this museum seems to target. She had a lot of fun with the sports exhibit (racing against rabbits and turtles), but nothing else held her attention for long. This is definitely a place that is more fun with a group of friends who know each other. My daughter would have had a blast putting on a play on the stage, but she was alone and shy. The large groups of kids really seemed to enjoy that one.

The paper airplane launcher was a lot of fun for the older kids (my wife and I).

“Wee one wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I went on a rainy Tuesday before lunch, which turned out to be perfect- no crowds. I felt like the price was okay for kids but high for adults and older kids, which I will explain. My son is 20 months old and this place is absolutely outstanding for that age group. I would say this museum is aimed at the 1-5 year old age group- anyone older would not get much out of it. All of the playrooms, water toys, rubber sandbox, climb on stuff and learning tools would not be appropriate for kids over 6 or 7 and all the parents can do is hang out and watch their kids live it up in this super cool kid friendly place- which is why I think the adult price and kids over 12 price is high. I would have to pay 15$ for my 13 year old daughter to tag along with her baby brother and I, as this museum offers nothing for older kids. With that being said, it really is a great children museum for your wee ones. My son loves it there, and we can stay for about 2 to 3 hours and it is still tough to get him out peacefully. It's a wild child's dream come true!
