    New Years Eve the museum has a tradition that families have shared for years. This year was our first year and our first visit. There are many areas for kids of all ages to explore. Our two year old g...  more »

    My two toddler grandsons love this place! Even though they are very young, there is still a lot for them to enjoy. And as they grow, they will just be able to move on to more mature attractions. What ...  more »

    What a fun museum! Such fun things to do. For example, children can (supposedly) pins, fueling, dentist games, shopping at the grocery store and cashier, sit in cockpit of an airplane, you name it! Outside is a nice playground and they can play basketball. There is also a water park at (they can romp with water), there you pay extra for. Our children (6 and 7 years) did not want to leave! It is also really a super fun museum, idea for Netherlands!

    The CMOM has a great outdoor play and splash area complete with a dinosaur dig beach. The newly remodeled craft room is wonderful. I am only giving it 4 stars because it is not great for children in 1st grade and up with educational activities. There used to be travelling exhibits but I haven't seen one for a while. But the older kids will love the zip line outdoors.

    Fantastic space for kids to play and learn. Tons of interactive activities and outdoor places to play. Great for families to be together, away from television and video games. Splash park in the summer is nice too. Something different. Great repurposing of the old armory!

    Kinda small but actually fun. The kids enjoyed it. There should be a discount for parents. Not a lot to participate in for adults. But still 5 stars.

    Kids loved the place. Very open and easy to get even large strollers around much of the museum. Staff is friendly.

    Great place to take the kids for a few hours. They are always adding attractions and have a great outdoor area with sprinkler park for the little ones.
