This museum is best for children 6 years and younger

We have taken our grandchildren to this museum. There is plenty for young children to do but no so much for those past first grade.

This is a fun place for children as there is something to do for most ages. Took my 8 year old granddaughters and 22month grandson there and they never stopped for the 4 hours we were there. The small kids room is perfect for toddlers. If you go, try to not go in the summer time for at least two... More

We took our infant son and 4-year-old daughter here one morning and had a wonderful time. We easily could have spent a few more hours playing. It was perfect for my active daughter and they had infant zones all throughout the museum. I highly recommend stoping here if you have kids under the age of 10 or so.

We brought my 1 year old granddaughter here for a play date. We went to the toddler room...3 and under...for the kids to play. My impression of it...it had a few cool areas, but also a lot of dangerous areas for young toddlers to be around. There were big metal bars that encased big exercise balls throughout the room, stairs... More

From the giant Treehouse to the Noodle Forest anything a child would or could imagine is available to them. My Grandkids had a blast. I do think the museum is better fitted for younger children up to maybe age 8. It is definitely someplace to visit for lots of fun!

We saw kids from toddlers to middle school age enjoying this place. Our 17 month old grand kids. Boy and girl were fastinated in every room with some aspect of the activities available. They were totally worn out when we finally left. The staff could do a better job enforcing rules and civil behavior with kids and thier parents where... More

Got there early with my family, cost about $11.00 per person. There was enough for them to run around and play. Little on the boring side for adults. Not too crowded that you can't get to your kid when you need to. I would totally use this as a giant indoor play area.

We loved the Phoenix children's museum. It was a fun place to visit, and out of the heat! It was especially nice, because we have a museum membership in our hometown, and this was part of the ASTC program, so we were able to get in for free with our pass. A great place for families with young children to... More

Our family first visited CMoP in February for a school field trip. We had to go again in the Summer. There is a huge 2-3 story high tree house in the center of the museum. There are plenty of other activities for kids of all ages throughout the 2nd and 3rd floors. There is a cafe on the 2nd floor... More
