All reviews older kids rainy day please touch museum toddler area arts and crafts interactive games different areas roller coaster coat check all ages nice museum few hours live in nyc lots of fun spend an afternoon floor manhattan
On a raining afternoon we drove up and went to the CMOM. It is very small. And just like everything else in NYC it can get very crowded. It seemed like there were 3 adults for car 1 child. It's probably fine on a weekday....More
We came for a few hours with our 10 month old. He was free and our admission was $14 each. You check your stroller and coats up front because it gets crowded! First and fourth floor seem more for older kids (arts and crafts). Third...More
We went here back in 2014 with our 18 month old and loved it. We came today with our 5 and 3 year old and were underwhelmed. We’ve visited many children’s museums in Boston, Baltimore, Philly and other cities and found this one lacking because...More
It was a hot summer afternoon and we decided we'll keep ourselves indoors for the day. Our 2y/o had so much fun here, as she got to try almost everything. Multiple levels of activities for kids to explore and enjoy. There's a lot of kiddie...More
Visited the museum twice during our trip to NY this summer. My 3yo loved it so much he kept asking to go there again. He simply loves Dora and Diego.
When you enter they stamp your hand, so you can leave and come back again...More
Four floors of awesomeness! First floor had creative activities with fiber and paper. Fourth floor was little city and hands on physics. Didn't even get to go to the other two, which included a Dora floor! Looked great!
This was my third visit with two young grandsons (7 and 4) in a span of three years. Once again we all enjoyed it! The various activities are engaging for the children; I actually also enjoy some of them as an adult. Everything is very...More
Called me spoiled. I'm from DE and we have a membership to Please Touch Museum in Philly. That is the standard that we base all children's museums. With our membership, we were able to gain entry into CMOM for 1/2 off ($28 for four people...More
Excellent toddler area. Balls, blocks, big toys, age appropriate structures/slides, etc. Several good exploration zones for the older kids (toddlers can enjoy too, if they aren’t getting run over by the bigger kids). Nice dance/music/stage area. First floor is devoted to special changing exhibits. Check...More
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
"Almost 1" is probably a bit young. There are certainly some "ball and block" things that they would enjoy, but they would have to be in there mixing it up with the 2-4 year olds. Can be kind of stressful...for the... More
"Almost 1" is probably a bit young. There are certainly some "ball and block" things that they would enjoy, but they would have to be in there mixing it up with the 2-4 year olds. Can be kind of stressful...for the parents/grandparents, that is.
Anyone been to the Children's Museum of Manhattan? (6 Replies)
We had been planning to go as there is a Dr Seuss exhibition on at present. A previous poster thought it might be more for preschoolers, any ideas?? My kids are 6 and 8. We will be doing The Met & MoMA as well...do you think it is still worth a look (1 hour or so)? Felic (P.S Thanks to all the replies from my previous post)

A friend and I went a while ago with her two 11-year-olds, and we were all disappointed. It looked to me like it'd be fun if the kids were with a class or had an instructor leading a program.

I took my son here when he was in pre-school and he had a ball. Now he is 10. I'd love to take my 2nd son who is 5, but I can't remember it well enough to know if my 10 year old would enjoy it. Is there enough to do to keep my 10 year old son happy or is it only geared toward small children?

Your 10 yr old will likely be bored, but it's not far from the Mus. of Natural History. They both might enjoy that.
