This is not a good place for introverts. If your child isn't the type to play with new kids or will be intimidated by loud groups, this might not be a good choice. The museum is so crowded there is literally nothing for a shy...More

What a great place for smaller kids (like under 10) to be able to learn and play and explore. It is much more doable than MOSI. There are so many things that little kids can do (legos, wooden trains, books, ball pits). There is really...More

This museum is totally hands on for all children. The first floor is great for toddlers. The second floor encourages the children to use their imaginations. And right now the third floor is Math Alive, that really tests your computer skills. It's a must!

We used our reciprocal membership while on vacation. My 8 and 9 yr old loved all the hands on experiences.

We took our one and two year old to this Museum. It has different areas for different age levels. There is an area where the children can play in the water, which the two-year old loved. Even better was an area with rubberized pellets which...More

Our kids had a great time at this museum. It is very entertaining and keeps them engaged throughout the visit. The only downfall was that the children's museum does not cater well for nursing mothers; they have one room only. Also, you can't bring your...More

Hi, you could spend 3-4 hours here if you wanted to. It's almost difficult to pull the kids out of there because they love it so much. We did go once for an hour because we didn't know what was inside and needed to check it... More
