“Great fun with the kids”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Kids love it. Friday evening $1 entry is perfect for winter outings. Finding a nearby parking could be an issue.

“Fun for the family”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

I took a 2 and a 5 year old here. They loved it and we had a great time. It was so interactive there was plenty for them to do and they left tired and happy. They enjoyed it which meant that we enjoyed it.

“Lots to do, great deal”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

It was a great place for kids and on Friday nights they have a $1 deal. My two year old loved it even though he was too young for many of the exhibits.

The museum was clean and full of activities for the kids to explore and learn. Highly recommended attraction if you get a bad weather day while in Boston!

“Keep the little ones busy”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Wish we had more time to explore. There's so much to do. Bigger than most childrens museums we've been to. Some rooms showed more wear and tear than others but that means that the kids love the room. My two year old loved the drilling and construction room and spent quite a bit of time in Arthur's kitchen.
