Owner description: Marbles Kids Museum is a hands-on, interactive destination that inspires children to be creative thinkers, active learners and confident individuals in today's world. With five galleries and two outdoor escapes, there is no shortage of activity for kids birth to 12 and their families. The campus also features the Wachovia IMAX Theatre at Marbles Kids Museum. This 267-seat giant-screen experience is the only 3D capable IMAX theatre in North Carolina.

This museum is really great for kids under the age of 8. My daughter is 10, so she had trouble finding things to interest her. However, she still found enough to occupy her for about an hour and a half. We purchased a ticket for the IMAX next door and the Marbles Museum together, so it was discounted and very inexpensive. We really enjoyed our IMAX movie.

Parents do not control their kids very well there is a lot of mess and u have to pay attention because older kids are not gentle with smaller kids. Lack of supervision in upper levels.

Marbles Museum is a wonderful place for young children to experience shapes, sizes, and building along with dressing up. The museum is
always changes in an effort to improve their offerings. The best part is that it is totally hands on.

Our 6 year old and 2 year old love this place. I don't typically go alone, as this place requires man on man coverage. It's a huge indoor space with a ton of fun and interesting things for kids to do. We could easily spend 2-3 hours here. Easily worth the 90 minute drive for us.

I wouldn't really call this place a museum but an exploratorium. My two year old twins loved all the interactive stations and were excited and busy all day. They seriously could have spent 12 hours straight exploring non-stop. There are so many stations that are creatively put together and well planned. Marbles offers something for all the little ones senses and challenges their creative, logical and physical abilities. I would guess that it wouldn't be suitable for kids much over 10 though. Marbles is a MUST if you have little kids and are in the Raleigh area.
