    What a great place! Kids have a wide range of activities they can engage in and lots of things to explore. They can also really play here, so it's not just a "run through and see things" kind of place...  more »

    Good for all ages! Me and a friend took our kids here two 11 year olds and one 4 year old. My son one of the 11 year olds loved the lab and the auto mechanic.  more »

    We love the Children's museum!!! My mom buys the kids a family pass every year for Easter and we enjoy it all year long! There is so much to do here, they have all kinds of different stations including art, science, an ambulance, a kitchen, a slide, a huge theatre and more! I promise your kid won't be bored here! They do First Fridays every month where you get in FREE from 4-7p on the first Friday of every month if you're interested in seeing how you like it but don't have the money! They also have a whole new upstairs addition coming soon!

    Stopped here on our way back to DC from Massanutten resort and had a blast with the kids. Small place but SO much to do! Would definitely come back if we're in the area.

    Took 3 kids here ages 2, 4, and 11. They had a blast and there were activities for all ages! The staff was so nice too! We came early and left for lunch then came back and stayed until closing. We will definitely be back!

    We've been members for 7 years. The staff know my children and genuinely engage them. The exhibits are changing frequently, and have grown along with my kids. Even at 9- and almost 12-years-old, they're both excited for our visits!

    A lot of fun, for not much money. People here are welcoming, and kids generally team up for fun activities like putting on shows or running stores/eateries.
