“We LOVE this place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

My son LOVES the Children's Museum! I would give the downtown location 5 stars, but this one only 4 because it's really only for smaller toddlers. My son is 3.5 now and was completely bored last time we visited the Short Pump location. He loved it when he was 2 though.

“CMOR-short pump”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

Great art room, but not a lot for older kids. Really fun for the 5 and under set. Go to the original in Richmond for older kids.

“Indoor Play Area for Children 6 and Under”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

This is a fun place for younger children. Plenty of things to keep them entertained: inside 'sand' box, a house to play in, a garden to grow, an indoor train to ride, 'berries' to sort, dress-up area, and a large art area.
