This museum is great for young children has just enough exhibits to keep them interested and worth the museum pass. It also gives you discounts to other museums. Some people think they need to visit m... more »
Lots to do here for kids between 2-12, although it seems geared for the younger ones. Nothing really fancy, just lots of different things to try- bubble area, tool area, number area, big play area for... more »

I have a two year old. Some of the tables were too high for her to use. The interactive materials were meant for older children (words lit up instead of pictures). Seemed better for children 5 and up. The exhibits were boring and simple -- she was most interested in bubbles, which we can do at home. Compared to the Strong Museum in Rochester (which was the same price), this was half the size, and half the fun.
A great place to take kids on a cold, rainy, or super hot day. They always have engaging exhibits, and rotate exhibits frequently enough so that kids don't get bored. Is appropriate for a range of ages and abilities.
It received a well-needed spruce up on parts of the second floor. Worth a revisit. Travelling exhibits keep it interesting for the preteens.
I Visited the Long Island children museum with my child psychology class and i honestly had a lot of fun and so did the the little kids 🤷🏽♀️💕 my favorite part was the bubbles and the music room !! Can't wait to be a teacher of my own so I can share these experiences with others 😊
Nice variety for the kids. Perfect local place to bring them when they're off from school. Right around the corner they have the carousel for $2 a ride. Bring snacks/packed lunch though!
