  • I thought there were be more to it! My grand daughter who is 6 was bored and only wanted to go outside and my grandson who is one and half really has no interest. And like most family cou...  read more »
  • Hands on activities for all ages. We spent 3 hours and still didn't get to play and interact with everything! For small children it can be a bit overwhelming, I recommend leading them through one area...  read more »
  • Having a 5 year old I have been to 4 other Children's Museums; Dover NH, Portland ME, Boston MA, and Washington DC. The Providence Children's Museum packs a lot into a relatively small space. We loved...  read more »
  • Fantastic children's museum. My 2 year old had a BLAST. They have an awesome water table room and all activities are great from toddler through early elementary years. We can't wait to go back.
  • A top-notch museum with tons of options for creative and educational play. The hands-on "exhibits" are suitable for kids at any age, even babies. I love watching my 2-year-old's thought processes as he challenges himself with the equipment. It can get crowded on weekends, so I prefer weekday visits. The free lockers and lunch room makes it easy to pack a bag lunch and stay all day.
  • Take your imagination and throw a stick of dynamite in it and kablooie. You've got Providence's Children Museum. The pedagogical thought put into this place is mind altering. They did a fantastic job designing this place and covered all the must-have-yous: history, geography, science, building, fantasy, experimenting, splashing and just good old roughhousing. There's a cordoned off toddler space that's attended by an adult, indoor and outdoor areas and party space for rent. Toss in an annual line-up of events and activities and you've got everything a parent needs to inspire their kids. $9.00 for adults and children; babies under 12 months and members ($100-150 per year) get in free.
  • We have twins and they love it here. There are things for all ages. Even as small as they are, there is an area just for young kids. The water play area is their favorite though.
  • I was extremely impressed by this medium sized children's museum in Providence. It had two floors and was pretty packed with different places for my 3 year old to explore and play in. Parking was free and the museum itself was 9 dollars which I thought was quite the bargain for the amount of things there were to do. We'll definitely be coming back.
