The Children's Museum was packed during Spring Break but my 3 year old nephew had a ball nonetheless. We also signed-up for and participated in a class at the Teaching Kitchen - the instructors really do a fine job guiding the little ones.

While my 9 year old will still go to the museum, it really is much more enjoyable for my 5 year-old. That being said, for that age group, it is spectacular. There are both indoor and outdoor exhibits, so on a nice day prepare for...More

The Museum has something that caught each family member interest. From the amazing geology and mineral and precious rocks exhibit to the space odyssey to the health expo, everyone in the family had a great time at the Museum.

We love this museum and when it's hot outside the outdoor water area is perfect for kids. This place is good for kids and adults of all ages and always has something new and fun going on to keep guests engaged.

I've taken my granddaughter a few times. There is a safe and wonderful area for the little ones (crawling and walking) to explore and learn. Lots of activities for all kids. Try to get there on week days when it is less crowded.
