A wonderful place to spend the day with the family, this museum houses a remarkable, kid-friendly collection of 20,000 cultural artifacts and natural history specimens, plus live plants and animals, and award-winning exhibitions.

We went Memorial weekend & it wasn't to crowded. Great exhibit's! We took 3 boys ages 1, 5 & 11. The museum was perfect for them. I don't think children over 11 would have a lot of fun here. There's an area geared for toddlers...More
This museum caters to the younger child (5 and under). The grandchildren especially enjoy the water play, digging in the sand, various building blocks, dress up area, and the various arts and carfts activities they have on week-ends. They also enjoy when the sea animals...More
This is a great museum to take children too! There are even some discounts for firemen, policemen, ConEd employees, teachers to help out with admission! When my family and I took my nephew, we got in for free because we had a ConEd employee, a...More
If you are doing New York with a toddler in tow, then put this on your to do list! They will love it, and you will be rewarded with a few hours peace. The museum is very much hands on, and aimed at young children....More

We took our 31/2 year old grandson. We had been there before, but not for awhile. He enjoyed the blue sand table very much. Also shopping in the grocery store.
He participated in an art class which he liked, but really was quite poorly done....More
Was my 5 year old grandson's first choice fo indoor activity.
Spent 4 hours snd wss still enthusiastic.
Lots of hsnd on activity. Relates well to local and diverse ethnic interests. Challenges the imagination of young children. Toddlers to maybe 10 years old best.
Fun for any age, colorlab was fantastic. Native voices, Imagine Ganesh exhibit was pretty with different versions, Mashpee Wampanoag Powwow traditional dance was massive and connected past to present simply for kids to understand. Definitely recommend.
