Lovely day with my two grandchildren. They simply loved this children's museum. The employee was amazing with the kids, he even knelt down when talking to them. They felt so special. The tractor was a favorite for one, the other liked the shopping cart. Except...More

Brought my 3 kids here last weekend - the staff was super sweet and obviously love their jobs and the kids that come in. Couldn't ask for better people. There's plenty for the kids to do, typically if they're under 5-6, though the museum is...More

It was $9 to get in for adults and children. I guess the rent is high in Short Pump Mall. Compared to the location in Richmond it is not as nice or as well maintained.

This is not a museum it's a children's play house. Although it has some interesting things for the little ones it's most definitely not worth the $9 entrance fee for kids as well as adults. Owner should be embarrassed for charging stupid rate for adults...More

This is for young children. Ages 2-5. Honestly your local library has just as much to offer. This has play stations set up. To say it is a SCIENCE museum is a huge stretch.

When my kids were younger, we frequented the Children's Museum of Richmond and the Old Brick Rd location is the largest and most entertaining. They have it set up for kids of all ages with different educational booths, young toddler play area, and our favorite......More

Its a great place to let your little one play while being out of the heat on summer days. $9 each is too much for such a tiny children's museum. We got bored pretty quickly. I did like that its located in the shopping mall...More
