5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

My kids loved this museum. They have dramatic play, art, bubble fun and teaching tools through play.

“Acadiana's only children's museum to be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I visited the children's museum in december with my boyfriend and two children. One is of the age of 8 and the other is the age of 12. Both are completely different even though there is a little age gap. With that being known and said, the children's museum bonded the two together our whole evening. I myself was lost in time and became a kid again. The staff was friendly and the activies are mind as well as eye catching. The gift shop had many affordable things unlike your average and expensive gift shops. I wish there was more space to the place, but they made the space they had work with many exhibits and hands on activies.

“Nice place for little kids.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Have been here several times with two little ones over the past few years. The place is a little on the small side. The displays are very interactive. The kids can grab and touch just about everything in sight. Certainly better for the 8 and under crowd. Older kids might not be very impressed.
It is disappointing that there has been little to no change in most of the "centers" since the first time we were here. This bothers me more than my kids, and would certainly not bother a first time visitor.

“Great fun for the kiddos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

This is a very cool place for kids. Everything is hands on and, while its not huge inside, there is lots to do. They have a Vet Hospital, Supermarket, restaurant, winter village display, ambulance, bubble center, large play area for little ones, lots of stuff to build, a craft room with free crafts (today it was pinecone Christmas trees & wreaths), and much more! The gift shop has a wide variety of items, ranging from 20 cents on up. The bathrooms are large and clean. Admission is only $5 per person and worth every cent.

“Worth the money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

My kids loved going to the CMA. We used to go often when they were younger. Museum seems to be geared for younger children.
