“Not enough for price”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

This may be fine for kids 2 and under. I took three kids ages 2,5,6. We were done in an hour. The Richmond site and the new Chesterfield location is better. The one good thing is that you pay for one and can visit all three on the same day. For the price, that is the best thing to do.

“Great way to entertain grandchildren”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Keeps the little ones active and happy while teaching them (without them even realizing they are being taught!)

“We LOVE this place!”
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”
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.
