  • My 2 and 3 year old LOVE this place! We have yet to go to the "DoSeum", since it is much more expensive & (from what I've been told) better suited to older kids. This children's museum has a great var...  more »
  • My aunt and I take my little cousins here all the time. It's fun for them and extremely fun for us as we get to watch them explore their creative sides and interest with other children.  more »
  • Suitable for children from 2 and up. My children had a blast and asked so many questions from space to farming. Very limited activities for children younger than 2. Place is high energy and has a cafe...  more »

  • I travel from San Antonio to bring my 2 year old here all the time! It's such a fun place where toddlers can run around. Weekends can get very busy and sadly they are closed on Sundays. My favorite time to go is around 3pm Mon-Fri. That gives my son 2 hours of uninterrupted play because it is usually very empty. His favorite part is definitely the grocery story. In there he can push around a basket that's perfectly his size. They also have a spaceship, bank, hospital and outside you can find water tables. Make sure to stop by the painting room! You can put an apron on your little one and let them get messy. Also, make sure you bring a change of clothes! If your child is anything like mine they will get soaked playing with the water tables.
  • There are several reasons I didn't give them 5 stars. First, there are no attendances watching areas, cleaning up or answering questions. Parents let their children roam freely and wild. They are allowed to take things from the grocery store to the space center area for example. The bathrooms were not clean. The outside play area that is not covered can get dangerously hot! I saw a little one fall and burn his knees and hands on the rubber matting floor. If it weren't for these reasons I would have given it 5 stars. The facility is nice and offers educational hands on learning for the kids. Worth $7.50pp.
  • Great for kids. Especially ones six and under. I like that they have stations of antibacterial liquid throughout the museum.
  • Well i give 3 star because my children enjoys his self here but we came for the time on March 17th for my sons birthday and the things that were broken then are still broken when i return in June. Cash registers are still broken. They need more kids dr equipment in the medical area. And lots of areas need a fresh coat of paint. This place is as much as the thinkery but they need to keep it up as much as they do.
  • This is the perfect museum for kids ages 1-10. From a spacewalk, bat cave, hospital, bank, grocery store, dress up store, etc. The outside play area is really awesome too. Easy to keep track of kids because of the set up.
