We have been going to this museum all of life but they have updated it a ton and change out exhibits often. From science to history and art they will have fun with all the hands on material.

This is a great museum for adults and children. The adult exhibits change periodically and The Children's Museum always has something fun going on. It's located in a beautiful old mansion...which has a very interesting history! In addition to the museum itself, they host lawn concerts every Sunday evening during the summer months and SeptemberFest, an art and craft festival,... More

The house is simply an art gallery. There were a couple of other buildings but did not look interesting. We were not provided a map so not sure if missed anything. It was Saturday so the Farmers Market helped with the atmosphere.

The Sunday evening Summer Lawn Concerts are so fun. It has usually cooled off enough and most seating is in the shade. Pack up a picnic, a nice bottle of wine, your lawn chairs and come enjoy the fun. The FARMERS MARKET is on the museum grounds during the summer, too. Saturday mornings at 8:30. Go early so you don't... More

When here on a trip to visit my niece and her family, it's not real big and small children will enjoy; her family liked it, as her four children were all under 10 years of age.

Its a really cool old mansion turned into a museum but not a whole lot to see. I personally like the Sante Fe Indian art. You can tour it 30 minutes or less regularly but the best time is during the lawn concerts or the arts and crafts shows outside-really some outstanding vendors to see then! There is food, face...

We visited the museum to see the dinosaurs exhibition. It was only $5 admission charge so it was fitting for what you got to see. The best part of the museum are the wonderful sculptures on display on the grounds. They photographed beautiful!
