  • After trying to figure out our plans for the day, I did remember the CMA. My nephew had his birthday party there in 2011 in one of the private rooms. So we decided to go there today. Upon arrival we s...  more »
  • Absolutely ideal place to spend 2 hours of fun creating. Painting, collage, workshops of dough, playdough, DIY. The setting is perfect for kids and parents there will be fun too!

  • Great little museum for kids of all ages. They have different sections but definitely sign up for the classes when you get there such as clay building and sound lab. They were interactive and fun, plus my kids got to take home their creations. I like the separate area door toddlers where they can draw, paint and explore. The imagination blocks area was good to burn some energy. Also like their climbing up slide. Would be nice if they offer a place to eat but you can eat on the 1st floor near front entrance. Admission can get pricey but get a Groupon which we did and saved a lot!
  • Great place for small kids to play, learn and do art. One of the two best museums for kids. Check out the recording studio, where your kids can record their own music!!
  • Great place for kids of all ages. Clay bar and stop motion animation studios are pretty cool. Not to mention the arts and craft area for small kids
  • The staff is super sweet and helpful. There are tons of things to do and a great place for kids
  • A very big waste of money and time. There is nothing special here at all! To make a project out of clay you have to stand in line to sign up and then wait another hour or two. The paper they provide for painting is horrible, of the cheapest kind. I am very dissapointed!! They would not honor the groupon discount since it was spring break. Total Sham!!
