“Amazing Children's Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

While Austin has a respectable children's museum, the McKenna Children's Museum in New Braunfels is by far superior. My son is 2 1/2 and was on the young side for the visit. He was completely overwhelmed (in a good way) by all their was to see and explore. The facility was clean and had helpers come pick up and organize after the kids have displaced everything. The exhibits include a grocery store, space ship, science lab, doctor's office, art room, toddler area, bank, home living, bat cave, out door climbing structure and water play. We spent 2 hours there with my two year old and we didn't spend much time at each exhibit because he was so excited to go onto the next one. Definitely worth the short drive from Austin or surrounding areas to experience this place.

“Hands On Fun & Education”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Cool place to be in the Summer or on a rainy day. All of a child's senses are explored and the adults have fun too.

“Fun place to take the little ones”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

I admit, I felt compelled to try some of the fun and games in this gem of a children's museum, but mostly sat around and watched the grandkids enjoy themselves. There is so much to do, and the museum is incredibly well laid out. My only warning would be to use common sense...bring hand sanitizer and use it often. On our last visit, my granddaughter brought a case of pinkeye home as an unwelcome souvenir, but this could happen anywhere that kids frequent. Altogether a charming place!
