  • The activities here for the children are awesome!! BUT it's too much. Kids can't process that much at one time. They can't enjoy any activities really because just when they get interested in somethin...  more »
  • This is a fun and educational place to spend the day with your children. It's very clean, and there are plenty of different things to do and learn. While my favorite Children's Museum still is the one...  more »

  • Very nice place for the kiddos. Many different sights to see and things to touch. You could spend hours there and have a blast. The curious George exhibit was a hit! I think the admission prices could be a little lower so everyone can enjoy it a family of multiple children may be unable to afford the admission.
  • If you have some kids, make sure you both take naps! Itll keep most any kid occupied for hours. Whether it's reading books, construction, or learning about Mississippi it's fun for everyone.
  • Lots of fun things to do, even the really little ones enjoyed it! Just try to go in the middle of the week close to when they open so it isn't crowded!
  • We have a membership and usually love it there. There was one time a manager was rude to me while I was nursing my baby because my daughter took some snacks out of our bag and apparently they don't allow outside food- but their "cafe" wasn't even open yet. Aside from that, we've had pretty good experiences every time we've been. They have different showcases now and then change things up. The giant Scrabble board is the best! They have a splash pad out front and a fenced outdoor area with a water fall. They grow herbs and (from what I've heard) will allow people to take them home. They've definitely got learning with modern technology down! There are so many things they teach and shows that it's hard to keep up!
  • The Mississippi Children's Museum is a great place for kids of all ages. Whether you just need a vibrant playground for your 2 year old to run off some energy or an educational experience to keep your kid growing, the MCM has something for everyone. With a mix of permanent installations, revolving exhibits and party spaces you'll definitely get your money's worth. We have the yearly membership and it paid for itself within 2 months easy! The restrooms are clean and there's even a cafe for when the hangries hit :). I dock it one star only because some of the exhibits could use a little updating. I'd like to see some new technology brought on board!
