We greatly enjoyed our visit and spent approximately 5 hours there. This museum is a reciprocal member of ACM, if you have a membership you can visit here for 1/2 the price if you have a membership at a participating museum. We were pleased with the parking arrangements at Atlantic parking on Congress St. There is an Au Bon Pain attached to the museum with ample eating area and good food for your child.
The museum has some very good attractions that are educational in nature. In some ways, it was more interactive than I have seen in other children's museums (good books to read in the classroom, tools to use in the construction area, etc...).
A must see is the Japanese House that is part of the museum, it is quite unique and interesting to explore.
I give four stars out of five because two of the exhibits were closed and the water area seemed to be missing balls or rubber ducks or some sort of objects that would make it more interactive or interesting.
The Boston Tea Party attraction is between the parking lot and the museum. The milk shaped ice cream stand is definitely worth a visit on a hot day.
Bring the family, this is a sure fire hit with the (pre-teen) kids.
