Sacramento Children's Museum, Rancho Cordova

Sacramento Children’s Museum is designed for ages birth to eight years old to allow children to "learn-by-doing"! Join us during Museum business hours to learn about math, science, art and social learning skills!

The Museum strongly believes that play is an essential part of a child’s “work.” Imaginative, hands-on environments provide children with a gateway for opening up their minds to developing new abilities, building confidence, and making connections between their dreams and their real world experiences.

  • Small but fun museum for younger kids. They can play there whole day for fun. If old as 5+ maybe feel boring in short time. We have not been there for a while since she is growing up.  more »
  • This is a great place to take infants/toddlers and kids up to about age 6. Very interactive. Water tables, paint station, grocery store, veterinary hospital, railroad, and more. Great for a rainy day ...  more »

  • I've been coming to the Sac Children's museum for two years. My daughter loves the Leo's market, noodles, ball shoot and house and painting area. Basically everything is great here. We started off in the infant area. Parents and children are suppose to remove their shoes prior to coming inside this close gated area but some folks are ignorant of the rules. And some parents don't watch their kids. That's another issue. In the museum the change things around so it's always fun going there. Bottom line, come here in rainy or hot days and let the kids drain out their energy. Membership is totally worth it if you come here a lot.
  • It's really fun for kids, but it is smaller than most children's museums I have been to in the past. However, the exhibits are very fun and diverse. It is really only good for kids about 8 and under, I'd say.
  • This is a place for toddler, pre-school age kids- just a small indoor playland. Not a learning facility if you are looking to learn about history, science, or interactive experiments. Plus adults must pay to enter ! Was very disappointed that it is labeled as a Museum.
  • Very expensive and so tiny. My 5 year old was bored quickly so we only spent 30 min there and all these bad 3 or 4 year Olds having a party were running around crazy and grabbing things out my son and I hands and no parents seemed to be around watching their kids.
  • My kids love going here and all the awesome activities keep their brain cells a-whirrin'.
