Loved the children's museum itself but we will not go back on the weekend again. YIKES. It was near impossible to keep track of my two kids with all the people there.

This place is fun for the adults too but you will look a little out of place if you don't have a kid with you! I love the museum and it is always changing so there are new exhibits all the time.

I would say 1-10 would have fun, depending upon the kid. Our 10 year old had fun there in Sept. But she is on the top end I think.
