Yesterday my wife and I took my nephew, his wife and their three kids to visit the professor. We kind of forgot how awesome the children's museum is because our kids are grown and moved out but boy we had a great time walking around showing the youngsters all the cool stuff there. Also, they have many new exhibits that... More

Came across this place whilst planning a route from Anaheim to Palm Springs which took in desert and realised Temecula was a great stopping place. However, this is a destination in itself and highly recommended as a fun but educational outing for anyone visiting Disneyland or Universal Studios. This is a lovely town and the workshop/museum is well placed on... More

We stumbled on the place while exploring downtown, and our 10 year old children loved it! They have a toy store in the front, then the back is the children's museum. It's only $5 per person for the museum, and worth the price. It's not very big, but it is super cute and has its own charm. There is plenty... More

What a wonderful little place. Went on a Sunday with a teen and two younger kids. Admission price was low and there is always a scientist (docent) around. It's a small place, I wouldn't think you could reasonably spend more than 1- 2 hours there. This is an interactive museum where there is little to no explanation on the exhibits... More
