My 3-year old had a blast. Even though she could not understand some of the exhibits(for example, the accelerator/break reaction time) but she still had fun experiencing each of the exhibits. It was fairly clean for a children facility. We could step out to grab...More

The museum was only a couple of blocks from the hotel where we were staying and since it was raining, we thought we would go. It's very reasonable $10/per person and you can come and go until 4:30 if you keep your receipt. Our 2...More

We have been to this museum twice before on trips to NOLA and we enjoy it very much. Lots of “hands-on” exhibits for kids that encourage learning and imaginative play. We especially enjoyed the “supermarket” with actual shopping carts and working cash registers, the art...More

This place is amazing for children. We went during the summer, and they had a schedule of activities including Yoga, storytelling, and crafts. The kids loved it, and so did we.

What fantastic interactive, creative, and well planned museum! Starting with the bubble table downstairs to the restaurant and career field exploration, this place has something for everyone. At $10.00/head for hours of learning and fun, this should be on everyone's to do list!
