“Long Island Children's Museum Fun for the Kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I have taken our grandchildren to this museum a couple of times. They are non-stop finding something to do. This is well designed and has something for all ages of children. It's a good balance of education, wonder and fun. I like it and so do the grandkids.

“lots of fun for the young ones”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

This is a great hands-on museum, and has more to do than the CMOM if you can get to L.I. A highlight is the climbing area. This is near the cradle of aviation, so not bad for a whole rainy day

“LOVE IT - especially in the summer time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

GREAT children's museum. There's a great outdoor play-with-water section in the summer that my 2 year old craves. There are so many interesting exhibits and new ones are added all the time! There is also a carousel right next door with beautiful wooden sculpted horses for $2 a ride.

“Long Island Children's Museum”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Long Island Children's Museum is a rip off. Although the place was a mob scene when I visited, there's nothing here of interest and very little of educational value.
