Poured rain all day so we planned on the Glazer Childrens Museum today. Unfortunately it was extremely busy with many middle school students - far too many boisterous children for the few teachers present to properly supervise. A few of these over zealous children had...More

We've now been here a few times, and never regret it, despite a hefty entrance fee. So much to do, so engaging, well-kept activities, lots of space to spread out and try new stuff. We'll be back time and again!

Great place for kids as long as it isn't busy. It gets small quickly once it fills up. Staff was attentive and reset things quickly so that kids could keep playing. Overall was worth going to.

While I would definitely say that children will enjoy their time here it should be added that your timing matters. When we visited the first floor was closed for some updates (understandable) but tickets were full price. This would have been less disappointing if, when...More

It depends on the child. My kids, ages 5&10, spent 4 hours and wanted to stay longer.
