LICM offers hands on experiences for children of all ages. My 4 yr old and his friend had a great first time experience here. They loved the sand area, although small, and the wooden blocks the most. Also enjoyable was the bubble area and the trick mirrors. Kids can come here and learn the effects of turning knobs and pressing levers, or make a project. It seems this museum will get packed at times, so be strategic in planning your visit.

Not crazy about the fact that everyone must pay to enter, but I suppose the fee for kids only to enter would cost more if parents weren't paying.

*Bring your own lunch to eat in the cafeteria or you must buy all vending machine type food and drink!

We took our granddaughters on a Saturday afternoon. Both the 7 and 10 year old greatly enjoyed the LICM. Highlights included the bubble room, climbing through the open tunnel, building a toy house and playing outdoors in the lovely water playground. The only drawback is the lack of a cafe. There are V E R Y limited vending machine options. ...no outside food allowed. We ate at the nearby Cheesecake Factory before our visit and look forward to returning on a weekday - less crowded.

I went to the museum with my son. It was rather expensive, costing $12 each. The place is not big, so it can be crowded. It basically tries to broaden children’s horizon. Some exhibits are interesting. Among them are Morse's code machine and graphic designing. The radio studio looks fascinating, but was out of order. If you have a small kid, it would be helpful to visit.

This place is great for kids from 2-10 years old. Lots for them to do, it's very hands-on, they keep the place clean and displays are all interesting even if you've been there before. We go about twice a year and it's still fun - especially like the outdoor area in the warmer months. And everything is pretty easily accessible even with a stroller.
Some local libraries are museum members and offer "museum passes" that you can borrow and you get in for free!

Great place on a rainy day but tends to get crowded. Pricey for a one time visit but you can get family plans for multiple visits.
