We have been here a few times and it's expensive but fun for kids. They have some fun arts and crafts tables. They had an instrument/sound show which all the kids loved. There is a fun water area that gets us soaked every time. We spend about 3 hours here each time. The only reason for the 4 and not... More

Brought my kids 5, and 6 here because it was much too hot for any outside activity! The price was reasonable- about $15 per person. Kids were entertained the entire day. There are multiple levels of attractions, science experiments, and games. They had demonstrations- one where they made ice cream with liquid nitrogen and all the kids ate it! The... More

Just when you think Vegas isn't toddler friendly, you find this great museum. Mostly for younger kids. If your kid is almost or already walking, this is a great place to spend a few hrs that will leave them exhausted and ready for a nap or bedtime. Just bring extra set of clothes in case they get wet, and snack... More

Always one of our summer activities since it's so hot in the summer. Our kids are 4 and 6 and they enjoy the activities that they can participate in. I would imagine 12ish would be the age in which kids might start to lose interest in things, but that is probably mostly because they are morphing into apathetic teenagers. I... More

Our 10 year old Granddaughter loves science, so we took her. There is nothing in the museum for kids over 7. We tried to get some help but the people who work here refused to help us. Asked for a manager and she said, just ask in each area and they will bring things out from the back for older... More

The Strip isn't exactly the most kid friendly place, so we built in a trip here as a change of pace for our family. It entertained my very active 2 1/2 year old granddaughter for almost 4 hours. Anyplace that can that done is worth checking out if you need to let the little ones burn off some energy. There... More

We took our toddler as a birthday treat and she loved it. It has so many interesting things for children to do. Some things were better suited for older children (ours was only 11 months), but nevertheless she enjoyed. It is quite pricey though if you have more than one child. It costs over $14 from age 1 to 99.... More

We have visited Science and Children's Museums all over the country in at least 10 states, so we've seen good and bad. Good museums can be hard to maintain, but it's necessary for a successful museum. There is a main play/climbing structure with levels lettered A through K that consists of many stairs that are way too steep. Half of... More

I would recommend this interactive museum to families with young children. I took my three year old and he loved it. It has three floors and there are plenty of activities on each floor. They don't have a restaurant which makes it inconvenient. You have to bring your own lunch if you plan to stay all day. I saw families... More
