We took our ten and eight year olds here while on vacation, and they enjoyed themselves. However, they were at the upper limits of what this place is best for. I would recommend six and below for this museum.

This is a fun interactive museum for younger children. They do a very good job engaging the kids and trying to make learning fun.

My son and I love to go to museums together and the Glazer's Children's Museum did not miss the mark. They had activities for all children's ages that spark their imagination and help them learn. All in all great place for kids.

Most of the play items are for kids under 3 yrs, not well maintained, and least informative. Only saving grace is the friendly staff.

None of the literature I read online specified under 10, (their website was down) and the reviews were very positive. But my over 10 was very quickly aware that nothing was geared for anyone above young kids. Great activity for the 5-8 set in particular I think but we left in less than 15 min. They didn't hesitate to refund... More

i took my 18 month old here purchased a membership ($100) only to be confronted when leaving by a disgusting sign of a dead baby which looked like spaghetti and a gentle screaming on the microphone forcing his beliefs on everyone. I understand free speech by why small children? What can they do? I guess scaring them will work. They... More

A superb facility which lacked supervision from staff which made for a rather "organic" chaos at times. If there were more staff on hand to not only guide the activities and supervise the "exhibits" (play areas) the children's interactions would be more productive and less chaotic - there were some exhibits my child couldn't interact with because older children were...

Our girls loved the 'water droplet" traveling through the cloud, the rock climb, building the house and garden, the grocery store, vets office, restaurants and fire truck. I just wish that some parents would be more aware of their kids hogging one activity for a long time.

A great museum for the kids, and in walking distance to all the other museums downtown. So I suggest making it a day and taking in all the museums
