  • My 3 year old enjoyed the time here. He's been asking to go ever since he saw the museum and activities on Blippi. Looking forward to taking him back.  more »
  • Sad excuse for a "museum". My kids were bored and not intellectually challenged. If this is the best Las Vegas can do for children then shame on them. They force you to wear a mask despite being...  more »
  • Excellent place to bring the kids 3-17 For the young ones their are levels of activities to do and let loose the mind to innovate and us imagination. You can easily spend 2-3 hrs here parking out front cost but free parking is inside their garage on the side of the building. Locals get a little discount they also offer memberships if you think you’ll use it that much. Restroom are pretty much located on every level. The staff are friendly and competent knowledgeable. The view from there is also nice and plenty of shopping near by. Overall we have been there several times and enjoy and my little man Love it.
  • This museum is amazing!! 3 floors and hours of fun. I was so impressed with this place. There is so much to see and do! It's so stimulating, clean, and fun for all ages.The weekends get busy but now that school is back in, mornings are quiet and it's so nice to be able to explore. My daughter is 21 months and is able to enjoy mostly everything they have to offer.
  • We go here several times a year and my kids always love it. They rotate/add exhibits fairly regularly so, even though I'm familiar with the layout, there seems to always be something new. Almost everything is interactive and I love seeing my kids love learning about science. It can get a bit crowded, but if you get there early you can see most of what you want in a few hours before it gets too crazy.
  • We went here with our Summer Camp for a field trip and our guides were so helpful! They set a great expectation and were close by to assist us for the entire trip. We took around 30 kids through the museum and had a great time! It's very centered around self-exploration but it's even more fun when the adults get involved! We took the new spy room VERY seriously and had an amazing experience! 🤣
  • We took the kids here on a Sunday afternoon and it didn't disappoint. It's a great family spot for parents visiting Vegas with kids. Parking was a non-issue (and free when we went) and admission for the 4 of us was under $50. There were plenty of activities for the kids to try. The Spy exhibit and Water World we're definitely the kids favorite. Go if you get a chance!
