  • Great place to burn a morning/afternoon. Lots of activities, and it's spread out enough where you don't feel crammed inside. My son really enjoyed the grocery store and restaurant -- he probably could have spent hours in there alone. The only complaint I have is the parking situation. If you come on a weekend, be prepared to either wait for a parking spot or park outside somewhere and pay.
  • This is the best place in Arizona to take young kids. Creatively designed and arty in spirit. There are three floors of play, creation, and exploration. I have taken kids to cool places all over the US and Europe and The Children's Museum of Phoenix is a world class gem. The only downsize is that it can get very crowded. Go on weekdays and start early.
  • Amazing museum! Three levels and we only made it through two. Lots of activities for children of all ages. Get there early because parking can be tough!
  • Had a fabulous time here with my 5 and 6 year old daughters. This is a huge interactive museum for children. Don't expect to be walking around learning about things. If you want that I highly recommend the science center down the street. This place is fun, inviting and made for children! Parking is free but limited so if you intend to come on the weekend come early. They do have a cafe with very good food but you can bring your own lunch and snacks. There are 3 floors of fun and even an outdoor space to play. My daughters favorite was the giant tree house when we first walked in. The price is decent for the amount of time you spend here. Take your time, let your kids be kids and enjoy the day. We will definitely be back again!
  • This place is an amazing plethora of sights and delights for your children and your inner child. Ride tricycles through a car wash, build a fort, climb through a tree house maze. Bring multiple adults, because while your child won't get worn out anytime soon, the parents definitely will lol.
