My kids loved this place. They are 6 and 8 yrs old. We had a couple of hours to kill in Palm Springs and someone at the visitor centre recommended this place. A great idea! Lots of hand on activities - painting a car, building a race car you can race on a race track, dress up, grocery shopping, pizza parlour, hands on science things, etc.

Geared to younger kids. My daughter, at 8 yrs old will probably only like it for a couple more years. 2 hours is a perfect time frame. Bring your own food. There is nothing to buy. Picnic tables outside.

Highly recommended! Wish I lived here, would go all the time!

I took my kids here from age 1-12, and they never wanted to leave. So many hands-on activities... pizzeria, grocery store, vet clinic, stop-motion animation. They can even paint a real car! So much to do, well worth $8.

Great affordable way to entertain the kids for a few hours. My kids thought this place was too " baby ish" since there were many small children in the ticket line but after entering they were having a blast. There is so much to do and my girls spent three hours here that when by in a blink! Highly recommend a visit here!

Lots of fun interactive experiences. From creating a movie to painting the VW bug to creating a car to race on a track. There activities from all ages of children or kids at heart.

Not out of the way to go by children's discovery museum. Great place for kids and adults. They are doing a wonderful job. This visit was not the time for touring the beautiful homes that is an annual fundraiser for the museum. We certainly never miss that when there in February.
