  • Visited the museum with 5 year old, he loved most of the exhibits, but some were just lame. Sunday was very busy as the time museum opened at 11, but by 1 it got a lot more quite. Might revisit, but n...  more »

  • I've been to several children's museums, but this one was by far the best. My son loved "driving" all the cars. We went on a Wednesday afternoon and I'm not sure I could handle this place on a busy we...  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.
