  • We used to be members here, but don't live that close by and my kids are getting older...today the 14 year old wisely opted to do something else, and we found that the 10 year old could still play her...  more »
  • I took my little brother here and it was a great and fun time for him. He had a lot of fun and he is only 5 years old. I suggest The Please Touch Muesum for little kids. 
  • Our daughter had about 3 hours of fun at this museum and pretty much just scraped the surface of what she could do there. It was a nice wide open space with different rooms full of different activitie...  more »

  • We've been going here for a few years with our two year old and she loves it. Her go to spot is the supermarket setup for kids, but they often have special exhibits centered around well known entities like curious George or Mr potato. They are also fine with you bringing your own lunch, but the food they serve is actually very good.
  • Its awesome the first few times you come but it seems like not much changes over the years. Been coming here for 5 years and its largely static. The kids have fun; for $130/year or whatever it is, I think displays should be more dynamic. Make me want to come back to see what's new, change the vintage toy displays more often so its like a childhood museum for the kid in all of us, make MY experience more interactive and enjoyable.
  • My son loved this place. I thought it was a little small to justify the price, but my son was really happy. All the other reviewers are correct, take your time, bring food, and have fun. Take your time, let the children play in each room. They let you bring in your food, so bring food, and take plenty of breaks. As a parent, I request that parents actively watch their children. We didn't have any problems, for the staff was always monitoring, but help your child share, and be pleasant with others. Park on the street, and bring your AAA card for a discount.
  • Amazing activities, staff, theatre, food and atmosphere. Kids get their hands on everything. Also wonderful for weddings and special events!
  • We love taking the kids here. They always have a great time. There's a fun, new Mr. Potato Head area open until January 2017.
