Other Richmond locations are also very well equipped and staffed. Our grandchildren are 18 months and 4 years old.

My daughter and I visited The Children's Museum yesterday with my 6 grandchildren who range in age from 3-9. There was something there for everyone and they had a great time together !!!! They spent the longest amount of time in the "theater" section, dressing up and looking in the mirrors and laughing, but they also loved the "apple tree"... More

So much fun to be had here. Lots of different rooms to play in! Build a car, be on tv, dig for dinosaurs, ride a cow, drive an ambulance- fun fun fun! While there are two other kids museums in Richmond, the one on broad st is best; especially with the bonus of being right next to the science museum.... More

Took the grandkids and had a wonderful time. Each exhibit was interactive and appropriate for all ages. We had as much fun as the kids and could have spent a lot longer there.

My experience of the Children's Museum was diminished by the large crowds. We have been a few times, but it seems we are always there when large groups from schools or day cares are present. For my toddler, it is hard to enjoy everything when the place is so full of kids running around. However, the exhibits are great. They... More

The CMoR format is a winner: variety of play areas (with subtle corporate advertising) in a clean, safe environment. Spoiled this visit by the indifferent attendant in the craft's area.

My girls (7 and 4) has a good time but they were done in less than an hour. They could have a good time at any park playground. The place is small, so toddlers will have a great time there, clean and very educational but again for little kids. $9 adults tickets were a little to much for that little... More

Where else can you take children of any age and have fun on a hot day? Reasonable and exciting. Love the exhibits.

Daughter had a great time here and we easily spent 5 hours. It was moderately crowded but we had no trouble funding things to do. There is a lot of variety of activities and attractions.

Great variety of things to do from dinosaurs, to farming, to performance , to community helpers we had fun from young to old. The carousel was fun too. She loved going round and round on the beautiful child friendly... More
