  • My little one absolutely loved it! Even at a year old, she loved going from room to room and playing pretend. And we absolutely adored watching her. Her favorite areas were the grocery shopping and the outdoor water area. It's great for younger kids because a lot of it is pretend or dress-up play; they don't have to think about or solve things like you do at other kids museums. We got so many cute pictures and can't wait to go back!
  • We always wait until after lunchtime so the place starts to thin out a bit from the field trips and summer care programs. They have so many different areas to play and learn. My son loves the space walk and airchutes, while my daughter could spend all day in the medical area caring for the baby dolls. This place is great! Just wish they didn't make you walk through the gift shop in order to get tickets and go inside.
  • Had a great time there with my 3 1/2 year old grandson. His favorites were the outdoor water exhibit and the wall with the air tubes. We ate lunch at the cafe and were pleasantly surprised how good it was. Friendly staff and lots of hands on stuff for the kids. Will definitely be back.
  • What an awesome place! I loved how clean it was! It’s a great way to let the kids play when it’s 100 degrees outside! Lots of fun things to do that lets their imaginations run wild. They do have some outside stuff that’s mostly shaded.
  • My family of 3 recently visited the McKenna Children’s Museum. Our daughter is almost 2 and it was perfect for her! She had a lot of fun exploring and playing. It is a great family activity that the kids will love.
