  • I have been taking our kids here for years. They still have a great time, but the museum is the exact same as it was when it opened close to 10 years ago. There are traveling exhibits and special even...  more »
  • The Mississippi Children's Museum has to be the best in the US. All 3 floors plus outside are amazing. The children 9 months to 6 years could stay there for a week and not get bored. It is great for a...  more »

  • A friend and I have gone to the children's museum every week this summer. We love meeting here and letting our toddlers play while we get to connect and talk while in an air conditioned play area for our kids. The employees are kind, the air conditioning is fantastic (during the Mississippi summer heat), the splash pad out front is a fun experience for my toddler. The Daniel Tiger exhibit was my toddler's favorite place to be this summer! The year membership is a great deal for my family as we have used it every week this summer. I highly recommend becoming a member!
  • Limited vegetarian options. Family toilets were a bit high. Otherwise awesome place! Great interactive exhibits we haven't seen elsewhere.
  • There's a ton of cool things for the kids to do and learn. The 2nd floor has bathrooms on both sides of the building which is great because packed bathrooms with little kids can be obnoxious. There's a splash pad out front that is pretty cool.
  • Expensive!!! Food and admission are not worth the price!!! The toys and stations were dirty and wouldn't be surprised if kids walked away with hand, foot, mouth disease. The music section was missing instrument items. The design of some of the stations was not easily accessible especially for elderly... The boat/ship playground is not adult accessible and if your child does not come back up you will have to climb down there to get them. The same is for the library section. Saw this elderly man fight to get his grandson back up. There is very little science and nothing more than a giant playground. Was expecting a lot more and paying these extremely expensive prices for a day at a playground was a complete let down.
  • Highly recommend. Felt secure for my grandson. Staff all over the museum. Friendly, caring. Security on hand.
