My kids went for their birthdays with cousins and had a blast playing together on every floor. If you're a teacher your admission is free w/ ID, children under 1 are... More

It was an unexpected delight to take my friend's 9-month old baby boy to the Children's Museum. The library is great for a baby, with a brightly colored checker board and lots of stuffed animals. Then, there is the work room. As politically incorrect as this may sound, that room was made for little boys! They have plastic pipes and... More

Been there numerous times with grand kids. They really stay interested and intrigued. Plenty of places to sit and just watch your kids, as well as all the others, you will be surprised at the memories that start darting through your mind!

The Children's Museum is an amazing place to let the kids play and have fun. There are staple exhibits that the kids run to every time we visit - the Kaleidescape is a wonderful addition; the building area, that always seems to have a little something new each time we go; and the grocery store and doughnut shop are always...
