This place is huge...there are lots of different areas to explore and it is a fun place for kids probably from ages 3 to about 8/maybe9. It wasn't the cleanest place, unorganized and actually pretty hard to enjoy the time with your child because way too busy. The prices are really, in my opinion too high for the experience however,...

I took my great granddaughter to the museum when she was about eight. Lots of children we saw seemed to really be having fun, but I felt most of the activities were too young for us.

We have visited here several times and had a blast each and every time. There is so much to see and do. Volvo Trucks donated a truck for kids to climb in and play. There is also a police car, a race car and a firetruck. Pretty awesome! It's a big place so even when there is a lot of... More

Our children love coming here. We save it for rainy and snowy days, cold days because there is so much to do inside. We stayed for 3 hours and probably could have stayed for more. The hands on exhibits are great for the kids.

We took 3 grandkids here for a day. For children under 12, there is much here to do. The museum is very large inside, and offers numerous opportunities for children to "make up" play in stores, medical centers, trucks, outdoors. Simply wonderful to allow children to construct their own world in imaginative ways.

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.
