  • We live south of Boston and made a special trip to go with our 3 year old son on a recent winter sunday. Easy ride, easy, free parking. We are members of the Boston Children's Museum and were pleasant...  more »

  • What a lovely children's museum. So much to see, touch and do! If the kids gets antsy, there's even a small playground to give your child something else to do! Great for busy hands and feet! Great pla...  more »

  • We have been to many Children's Museums, and I have to say the staff at Providence Children's Museum were by far the most engaged. The started at entry with a "She's going to love it", to a meltdown eliminating sticker when it was time to leave, and just about every moment in between. The water room was wonderful and I had to coax my daughter of the room so she could enjoy the other areas. I noticed multiple employees wiping down and cleaning areas. Another performed active maintenance on a ship display without interrupting the children's use of the ship. We have family in the area and plan to make this a regular stop each time in the future.
  • Absolutely delightful! The water room was so much fun. The rooms to explore Providence's history were a lot of fun. The toddler area was a nice break. The staff weren't above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience in all the exhibits. We loved it!
  • This was a great experience! Only downside is there is no cafeteria so bring food. Kids of all ages can enjoy the exhibits and learn. We especially loved the water room!
  • We like this place so much, we've both the family membership. I would comment for those without a membership to keep an eye out for free Friday's. More than once I've seen this. I would also say that this children's museum more than others we've visited has a lot more fun stuff for kids under 3. It seems to me many places only cater to older kids, but Providence Children's Museum is for both younger and older.
  • Love bringing my boys here. So much to do, many hands on experiences with science, technology and social studies. A great way to spend an afternoon.
