Great outing for families, young and older children as well as an awesome interactive field trip for school groups. I have held a membership for two years and regularly enjoy their amenities at a deep discount. The children's museum also offers adult activities from time to time as well as summer long camp opportunities

I loved the convenience of the Children's Museum- convenient to downtown, convenient to the freeway and a great place to drop in for a few hours and have a place to get lunch, fun and the kids energy out! So many activities and even a real garden where kids can experience gardening with hands-on activities. The art room was a... More

The Children's museum is hugs and offers plenty to do for kids. A lot of educational and hands on activities. They offer special pricing on some Friday evenings as well. Also have monthly events. I would recommend if you have never been.

Took our two year old grandson to the museum. He took us. Place was really clean, well staffed with courteous employees, and just so much fun. Flew a jumbo jet, rode a train, had a tea party, made pizzas, shopped at a market all geared for children. Oh yes, had to drive a fire truck, an ambulance, deliver mail and... More

This is a great place for children. Plenty of space to run around and play on real vehicles. My grandchildren enjoyed it.

I wasn't sure if my 18 month old would be old enough to be interested. But she absolutely loved it! We saw every bit. She was able to enjoy just about everything. Very cute, clean, not too busy and free for military and dependents

Alot of the exhibits are hands on for the kids and they love that. A good way to learn a lesson in a fun way. Could not get one of my grandkids off the plane!

We love the Children's Museum! There's something to do for kids ages 6 months to 8-9 years olds! Fridays from 5-8 admission is half price, and teachers get in free anytime with a valid teacher ID. We sometimes take our lunch and spend a good while playing, or just go in for an hour or so on a Friday night!... More

This place is a very pleasant surprise! I would easily say that it rivals more recognized similar places in bigger cities by all measures. There are varied exhibits (doctor's office, farmhouse, post office, and even a TV station!). Also, there are life size real vehicles (police cruiser, fire truck, ambulance, tractor, race car)! The whole place is clean, well kept,... More
