I live in Philadelphia where there are tons of places for children, but it was more convenient for me to find somewhere to take my grandson for his birthday closer to his home. My friend at work told me about this place. It was perfect!...More

The museum is a lot of fun for young kids. The people who work there are just ok, they seem a little burned out. It can keep kids busy for a least one hour. I took a very young kid so that was my experience

I publish a kids' newspaper and think the museum should have more interaction with kids and kids connecting with other kids globally and in the U.S.

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...More
