What a treat to have a new place to take the kids while on vacation in Sacramento or for locals of course. Our kids are 7 and 8 and played for hours each day we visited. They never got bored. My understanding is that children's...More

It was fun but it is geared more to younger kids then my own 9 year old but we still had some fun. I just wish they would add a little more older kid friendly things.

This is a great place to take infants/toddlers and kids up to about age 6. Very interactive. Water tables, paint station, grocery store, veterinary hospital, railroad, and more. Great for a rainy day or a hot summer day.

The museum is great for children under 4. There are enough activities and spaces for free play that toddlers would really enjoy themselves. For children 5+ and parents, it is a little disappointing that the museum does not change or rotate exhibits every once in...More
