Too many people make the museum feel small. It gets very crowded particularly on Free Thursdays. Needs more activities to be added for teens.More

Very interesting museum. My child enjoyed himself very educational but very fun learning experience. There is a beautiful water activity on the ground for the kiddos as well!

This place is great for kids. It gets really busy on the weekends so if you want to give your kid a chance to play with the things at the museum, try going on a weekday when it's less busy.

This museum is so fun for kids. They have tons of hands on adventures. The children learn and play in a fun and colorful environment, and even get to play with some water. Great times are to be had here. Don't miss it.

My kids LOVE the Children's Museum. They are 4, 6, and 8. There is soooo much to do. We didn't have time to do everything and we were there for over 4 hours. They enjoyed it so much we are looking into getting a membership.

Hey, Suzy! The Museum recommends arriving early or arriving late during the day. That also depends on the season; during the school year, crowd comfort is at it's best.

Absolutely! There will be a few things he/she can't do, but as opposed to the things your toddler will be able to do- it's worth it. I've been taking my child since he was a little over 1. Great place!
