Visited this weekend with a 3 year old and grandparents. It cost about $45 for 5 people which included more adults than children. We only did one of the extras which was painting nails which my toddler loved and it was the best part for her. I would say for the cost and it being a very dinky basement you... More

Last week we spent 3 1/2 hours there and felt we "got our money's worth".The Playseum Has about a dozen rooms. When we arrived our three-year-old granddaughter went shopping in the Safeway. She particularly liked working the cash register and the credit card machine. She went into the dress-up room she crawled around on some of the toys. She loved... More

Im always looking for places to take my Grandson and I stumbled upon a Groupon on LivingSocial deal and was pleasantly surprised at this hidden gem located down the steps in the basement of a building. Parking isn't fun but you can park across the street behind the restaurants and walk the block over. Parking is metered during the week... More

It kills me that my daughter (3.5) loves this place so much. It's no surprise that she does - it's a messy free-for-all with lots of stuff to get into. But I agree with many other commentators about the place being a bit run down, feeling dirty. Boxes in the grocery store area are falling apart and taped back together... More

This is such a cute idea. It's obvious the place is operating on a tight budget but if you take that into consideration this is a great place to spend a couple hours. My six year old daughter loved it. Grandma's attic had antiques to peruse complete with an old typewriter and an a electric organ which could be played... More

The stations (rooms) are not regularly put back in order, so elements of the activity get strewn around into other rooms. There was no staff around to help handle animals, provide play dough, or dispense treats. Seemed to just be someone with the pay for painting a craft area or ticket person. Was a bit icky. I really wonder how... More

My son and I found the Playseum underwhelming and disappointing. It's a cute concept, but very poorly executed. Here is why it didn't work for us: 1) The space is poorly maintained. The carpet is stained, the walls desperately need a new coat of paint (and even have holes and gashes in some spots), and everything feels cluttered even when... More

The idea behind this kid's museum is on target, but the areas themselves are grungy and sloppily designed. The cost, at $7 a person is quite high given that my son was done playing in about 20 minutes. Also, any activities, such as painting, etc. came at an additional cost. The painting area that was free was gross. I have... More

Playseum is a wonderful place to take your kids to enjoy helping them learn to use and expand their imaginations. Located downstairs in a building on Wisconsin Avenue... you and your young kids can choose from a myriad if games and activities from decorating cupcakes to making your own toothpaste. Hear a story or learn to play an instrument. The... More
