  • With children aged between 1 and 4 there have been and the rainy day more than useful bridges. There are areas of special and permanent exhibitions. The prices are steep but, from one year the fun costs $17, a ride on the send historic carousel hit on it again with 3 euro. But who brings with him his food, saves at least there.

  • This Museum couldn't be more fantastic! As an adult, even I was tempted to jump in and play with the amazingly-curated, imaginative collections of ingenious toys, make-believe sets, and play spaces.

  • Great fun for the kids, but not really a museum in the traditional sense. It's more like an art gallery with fun, interactive exhibits. Parking is easy for street parking, prices are reasonable. The activity rooms easily facilitate birthday parties. The maze is great fun for the kids.
  • This is the best museam ever.Wait,museum?Its not even a musuem,its a pla y place!I had the best experience there ever.I lived in the sticks in Gilbertsville and every couple of weeks or so,i visited my Aunt Cara and she lived in Fairmount Park.I went there everytime i was with her it was so FUN
  • My son loves this place. Wide spaces for kids to walk around and explore. Usually crowded. Carousel lines are long. $1 for up to four people if you receive public assistance. My son enjoys water play.
  • Great museum for young children. It's mission INSISTS that you TOUCH EVERYTHING which is great for learning and experiencing science in different ways. They also have a very fun carousel. Definitely a must go if traveling with young children.
