  • We had several hours so enjoy Phoenix before a flight home. The children's museum was a great choice for our eight year old. Not only did she enjoy herself she was able to burn up a lot of energy befo...  more »

  • Was fun for my toddler! He had a blast playing on the third floor at the under 3 area and in the play grocery store. He also went through the car wash more than a couple times. Fun place, wish they didn't charge adults full price, but it is what it is. Put a Starbucks in there and I wouldn't miss a beat.
  • I love this place, but I think they should charge a little less for the parents. That aside it's a great place to take the kids. There is hours of fun for them. I recommend packing a lunch and getting a locker. The food is good, but rather pricey.
  • Fantastic place to bring your kids and family. First Friday's are free but expect a line: worth the wait and not so bad as it might appear the line advances quick. Friendly and curtious staff. We've visited several times and our kids enjoy and learn while playing.
  • Possibly my favorite of many children's museums I have visited across the country. From the moment you walk in, you get the sense that every detail of the museum was designed to creatively cater to the way children's brains work. I love the use of recycled materials in the decor, toys, and exhibits.
  • Lots of activities for the young ones. I especially liked the fact that there's a dedicated area for babies and tots below 3. My 8 month old was free to crawl around without me having to worry that older kids might bump into him while playing.
