I go here at least three times a month with my five year old and she absolutely adores it. It is indeed a sweet, little museum but the key word here is little, be prepared for that. Whilst there are a few different interactive exhibitions for the children to wander around, there is quite limited spaces for adults to sit.... More

We took our two year old there later in the afternoon. He seemed to be okay with playing at a few of the stations there, but there wasn't really anywhere for adults to sit down while kids were at play. Only one or two benches in main area was all that I saw. Additional stress from unsupervised kids running around... More

Wonderful afternoon with the grandchildren! Great museum for children! There is everything from a hospital where they can treat patients; ice cream stand to serve ice cream; grocery store all of which our grandchildren had a blast!

Wonderful hands on museum for young children. Went there with a 3 1/2 year old. She seemed to love it as did the adults. It can be toured in about an hour so the children won't get bored at all

I was very disappointed with this "children's" museum! My daughter has severe reflux and an anxiety disorder and had a small spit up at the museum. They told us we had to leave as they don't tolerate sick kids. I explained my daughters medical problems but they were still insistant that we leave. I even personally cleaned the floor with...

It was so nice of the museum to give us a 50% discount since my daughter and grandchildren's dad is in the military. We spent a wonderful afternoon playing together. The grandkids want to go again next time they are in town!!!

I took my 5 year old nephew there and he thoroughly enjoyed it (as did I). It was on a weekday, so not very crowded. There was a variety of exhibits, some that I had not seen before at other museums, and all were hands-on. Reasonably priced. The only drawback was that parents allowed their children to carry exhibit pieces... More

Took my 2 year old granddaughter here while the 5 year old went to a children's play at the Bucks County playhouse. It's perfect for toddlers - wouldn't recommend it for older than 3 though. But lots of easy things to keep her amuse and occupied for an hour.

Mom-mom & Pop-pop took 4 grandchildren here for a first visit. The two older ones, ages 5 1/2 and 7 live in center city and go to all the children places down there (please touch museum, Franklin institute, zoo, etc.). The younger 2, ages 5 & almost 3, are from Maryland & don't have as many options. All 4 has... More

It was s smaller than I thought it would be, but especially if the weather isn't very good, it's a great place to bring the kids. They will have a good time, since New Hope isn't really that kid friendly, gives them some fun.
