Children's Museum of Richmond is small and can be crowded with little kids. They have a few things to do but it will not keep other kids busy for the entire time. Not a must see but if you are n the area you can...More

It was $9 to get in for adults and children. I guess the rent is high in Short Pump Mall. Compared to the location in Richmond it is not as nice or as well maintained.

This is not a museum it's a children's play house. Although it has some interesting things for the little ones it's most definitely not worth the $9 entrance fee for kids as well as adults. Owner should be embarrassed for charging stupid rate for adults...More

This is for young children. Ages 2-5. Honestly your local library has just as much to offer. This has play stations set up. To say it is a SCIENCE museum is a huge stretch.

When my kids were younger, we frequented the Children's Museum of Richmond and the Old Brick Rd location is the largest and most entertaining. They have it set up for kids of all ages with different educational booths, young toddler play area, and our favorite......More

This location is in the mall which one may think is good. There is more parking and better hours. However, the location is very small compared to the old location and the others in the area. I miss some of the attractions from the other,...More

Its a great place to let your little one play while being out of the heat on summer days. $9 each is too much for such a tiny children's museum. We got bored pretty quickly. I did like that its located in the shopping mall...More

(Trip Advisor needs to update the location, CMoR on Old Brick Road closed a year ago.) Pleasant place to spend half an hour with your children or grandchildren, but lacks the room and variety of the former Short Pump CMoR. Adequate, but disappointing.

Children's Museum in Richmond has two campuses. I feel that this one is geared more to the younger Pre-school age children and the one on Broad is better for older children. It can be pricey because adults have to pay too but the kids usually...More
