  • It looked more like a daycare, usual toys and play stations. First floor is more for kids aged 1-2 and second floor for kids 4-5. Only cool thing is that you can record a green background video on sec...  read more »
  • I went with my children of 9 and 5 years of age at the Museum, neither of them was excited to enter, but since the first attraction they were fascinated. They went to the room of animation where do monkeys with clay and then make an animated film, after going up to the room audio and video where the two had the opportunity to record a music video with spatial effects, the video then send you it by email (as well as the animation of the first room), the third Hall where we were was the robots that control with a Tablet and that the captive. What at first them it seemed a sosa visit turned out to be an incredible experience for both, don't hesitate to take your children if are in San Francisco

  • Normally I think our 11 year old is too old for children's museums, but this is the exception. We got in free with our reciprocal membership from the museum in our hometown. Went straight to the video...  read more »
  • Great exhibits. Fun atmosphere. Easy BART ride from east bay. Awesome playground nearby. Lots of city fun.
  • The audience is unclear. Maybe trying to be all things to all people and not really succeeding. The one-year-old and three-year-old I was with weren't impressed. Maybe better for older kids. Also, for a kids place, they were very restrictive about food and drink.
  • Awesome place for kids 3-9 years old. Older kids may be bored.
  • A good museum for little kids. The bottom floor has a reading corner, crafts table, puppet stage, giant building blocks, magnatiles, animation station, sticky dots, a toddler slide, and sometimes outdoor water activities. Upstairs they have a karaoke room, an imagination center where your kid gets a kit of scraps and pick a card took figure out what to build, and a computer room.
  • The Children's Creativity Museum has engaging exhibits for people of all ages. The CCM (formerly Zeum) is located right in the middle of downtown San Francisco, next to restaurants, a fabulous playground, ice skating rink, vintage carousel and other museums such as SFMoMA, the Contemporary Jewish Museum, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the future Mexican Museum in San Francisco. After rebranding in 2011, the museum expanded its Early Childhood program by adding interactive music and storytelling sessions called Early Birdles in the mornings and afternoons. However, it is still a great place for wide range of ages (including parents) from the Animation Studio, where guests can build clay characters and create stop motion videos, to the Music Studio where kids and sing, dance, dress up and record their favorite song. All the videos are able to be downloaded at home and shared with friends and family. The latest development is the Innovation Lab where youth are exposed to the idea of open ended brainstorming, prototyping and working with limited materials to build inspiring artworks designed to creatively solve problems. This area hosts innovators of the month who host workshops that introduce children to computer programming, robots, paper circuits and the latest technology seen at today's maker-faires. All this plus sensory tables, construction spaces and daily art workshops makes this space a place where kids can learn and have fun at the same time! If you are just visiting SF, looking to plan an interactive birthday party or if you are a teacher in the Bay Area you will enjoy the variety of activities and the facilitation by CCM educators in this dynamic space. -Monika Lea (Current Exhibits Associate)
