My kid had a good time, but I wasn't impressed. It was kind of pricey for my family of 3 to get in. There's not much to do. The place seemed a little run down. I've been to lots of other children's museums in different cities and this is by far the worst.

I was very excited to take my young nieces to the Children's Museum. I have been to other child-oriented learning places and have been impressed. However, this was dirty, small, old, outdated...everything but the gift shop was so worn out and dirty I felt like the kids were rolling in germs. Cleveland can do better.

Not as large as I thought it would be. And the some of the staff members weren't exactly friendly. It has a cute little snack area (including silk chocolate soy...yum) made especially for short people and three floors of rooms built like a small town i.e doctors office, city bus, baby room, water play, climbing tower, supermarket etc. It could...

This place has a lot of things for kids to touch feel and do. Displays, information, learning tools. But a good time for little ones around 5ish.

I was sad when I visited the Childrens Museum. I have been to Cosi centers and other equal places. I have never left those places feeling like I was just in a germ fest. I am generally not overprotective of my daughter and germs, but this place was icky. Lots of stuffed animals, pillows, blankets and such things that are... More

The museum is best for children under 6. This place could be really great if they could make improvements. They have several different toy centers, one is a house filled with babies and kitchen for playing house, a grocery store for shopping, water play area etc.. The toys are all dirty and WELL used. Yes, when you walk in you... More

I thought the museum was too hyped up for what it was. The main part of the museum was a "play town" where kids can visit the doctor, grocery store, daycare, etc. Really? This is our real day, I don't need to pay admission so my kid can "play" grocery store. Another permanent area is a "farm" with basically a... More

This is a great place to take young children. My children loved going to the children's museum when they were younger. Lots of different activities and opportunities for imaginative play. It's a smaller space than some other children's museums, but they make the most of the space. It really is worth the trip!

I walked in with my twin boys and was immedietly blown away by the stench of bleach. I just had a feeling that my kids would walk out of there with something that they didn't have when they entered (if you know what I mean). If you don't care about the general feeling of cleanliness then this place is perfect.
