“Good day outing with kids”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

This is a fun place for young children to explore. Lots of good play areas and fun exhibits. My 3 year old could have spent the entire day here. Older children might not be as equally entertained, but there were several exhibits for 7-8 years to use if they were interested.
All in all, our trip was definitely a success. I am not sure well be back, but I'm glad we came and I'd recommend it to others.

“Great place to take the grandkids for a day”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

Very much oriented toward active learning. Water wheel, earthquake simulator (build a model and turn a wheel to see if your building will collapse.)

“Lots for kids to do!”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

Would recommend the Children's Museum for kids up to age 12. The upper floors are for younger kids. The first floor was fun for all. Easy to get to, easy to pass an hour or two inside.

“We All Loved It...”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

We went to this lovely kids museum with the whole family... two grandparents, two parents, one aunt and one 15-month old boy. The once pretty basic SLO Children's Museum has been turned into a very special place. If you go with a toddler, be sure to go to the top floor, where everything is a bit quieter and the entire floor is designed for them.

When we went (on a Saturday morning), the place was crowded, but not uncomfortably so.

“Decent but very small.”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

It's fine for a once in a while visit but it's small size makes it hard to go back more than once a year, especially since they don't have anything very special or unique there.
