I just stopped by for a quick visit with my 7 & 4 year old. This place is full of interactive activities to keep kids of all ages occupied.!

The Junior League of Jackson truly outdid themselves helping get this Community Jewel up and running! We take our Grandchildren here every time they visit because there is so much Hands-On and so much to see and learn! Don't miss it! So convenient to get to---right off I-55 and Lakeland Drive.

Took my nine year old grandson to this museum. It has a lot of stuff to do for kids crammed into one space. Its hard to keep up with your child. He thought most of the stuff was for the younger children and not a lot of stuff for him to do. Thought it was a little silly to charge the mother and grandmother the same price as the child. Obviously they are not going to play on the equipment. Bathroom were not well maintained. The attendant working there were on their phones all the time. Was a bit disappointed.

I have visited this museum four times over the last three years and it is disappointing to see that this facility is not being maintained as it should. They have a large variety of things for children to play and learn with and my grandchildren love to come here. Some attractions need simple repairs and the whole facility needs a good scrubbing.

I was also very surprised that the restroom had no soap or paper towel, especially during flu season.

It saddens me that they aren’t using the substantial entrance fees to maintain this facility. My city does not have the luxury of having a Children’s Museum so to see one slowly deteriorating due to lack of maintenance is disturbing.

I hope they do better in the future.

I loved this place adults and kids can have fun! I went during the winter and there was a winter wonderland slide-- it was long! We loved the tunnels and the pretend broadcasting room. The prices were quite reasonable. This museum also shows children life skills like washing a ca and so much more. I would recommend this place to people who have kids and like to enjoy family time.
