“Great place to take kids if you're on the Cape”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2010

Have taken the kids here twice while staying nearby in Woods Hole. Both times they had a blast. Good news is they probably learned a thing or two as well (many of the activities and displays have an educational aspect). I enjoyed checking out the Wetu and reading up on Black Sam Bellamy.
My only complaint regarding our second visit was that we had specifically come to hear and see the pirate re-enactor from the Whydah who did not show up! All 3 of us were dissapointed, but especially my oldest boy who had come dressed as a pirate. I know this is probably outside the control of the museum, but an announcement may have been helpful and I hope they let the guy know how dissapointed this left us feeling.

“Not quite a "museum"”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2010

If you are looking for a play place for your child, then this is the place, but if you are looking for the traditional "museum" setting you will be disapointed. More of a large - one room play area. Yes, there are things to learn, but a child can learn pretty much any time he plays!

“great place for kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2010

this childrens museum is a wonderful area for children to learn and play. Many activities
and friendly staff make this a must stop for families visiting cape cod. While visiting
you can have a hotdog ,burger or sausage from Frank's Franks in the parking lot
and use the outdoor benches. The childrens museum is a clean, safe environment
for your children.
