this was a disappointment for family as the 4 year old had difficulty getting near a lot of the innovative teaching exhibits. Concept is great but they need to meter entrance or do something else because it was much too crowded to be participatory.

I love the Children's Museum. From the life-sized fire truck the kids can play on, to the pretend Whole Foods Market - to blowing gigantic bubbles...it's just a great place. Avoid going on the Free Day because it's just absolutely insanely busy. Otherwise, it's definitely...More

The Children's Museum was packed during Spring Break but my 3 year old nephew had a ball nonetheless. We also signed-up for and participated in a class at the Teaching Kitchen - the instructors really do a fine job guiding the little ones.
