There is something for every child's interest. Water area a bank and steam punk style machines. There are craft work stations as well. Often there is live entertainment.

Very fun and educational for the kids to roam around, can be expensive if you are unable to go at the discounted days they offer. Just like everything else these days. But if your schedule is open, you can go very cheaply! Overall nice experience.......

If you are from out-of-town and visiting the Children's Museum with kids for the first time, it's pretty guaranteed they will LOVE it! It's a giant playhouse with several hours worth of stuff to poke, climb, build, dismantle, pull, jump, and just about anything else.

Kids love going here. All the interactive things make learning so fun for kids. When you go make sure that you go for an all day visit to fully enjoy everything.

The climbing space, Lunar year art projects, and rock wall are so fun the kids hardly wanted leave, a little expensive but worth it.
