  • We visited a little later in the day with our 6 and 8 year old and wish we would have had more time. The museum really plays up creativity and technology. Kids spend 30 minutes plus in each exhibit an...  more »
  • My 4 year old had a great time with the stop motion animation studio and the outdoor play area. Parking can be a challenge but still a fun afternoon place to visit.  more »
  • We came here a couple of times with my 4-year-old. On two occasions we rode the carousel only. On a rainy day we went to the museum itself and my daughter had an excellent time for a few hours. We did...  more »

  • One of my favorite museums for kids!! And the name does it complete justice!!! So many things to discover, create and enjoy!! They a room where you can draw and it comes to life on a big screen in front of you!! Creating figurines with clay was super fun, plus you can make a frame to frame movie!! Sand, blocks, books, puppets, adventure, music plus an outdoor playground which has amazing big slides!! I highly recommend coming here with your kids or even your not so little kids!!
  • Recommended age group- 2-12 years Ticket Price- $12.95 for adults as well as kids Carousel regular ticket price -$4 per person. Money Saving Tip # 1 - If you have another Bay Area Museum’s yearly membership card, carry it with you. If it falls under their network, you get 50% off on your ticket price for all members. Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose is in their network for sure. That’s the card I used for my discounted tickets. Money Saving Tip # 2- Do not buy the carousel ticket directly outside. Go inside the museum, buy your entry ticket and get $1 off per carousel ticket. Timing: The museum shut at 4 pm on Sunday (when we visited) but the carousel ride shut down at 5 pm. Walking distance from Powell BART station- 6 minutes Creativity and Innovation galore: From making an animation video with our clay and wire models to animating paper cutouts, from solving the mystery box challenge and building something interesting to making robots demolish and draw....we loved it all! Our favorite activity: It was surely the one next to the entrance. We colored and scanned our pictures. They were dropped on to a gigantic screen and came to life. Loved it! This place is full of innovative, interesting and fun activities for parents and kids. Must visit in San Francisco.
  • it was great! My sister loves the animation center where she made her own film with a little clay mermaid. We also bumped into a live performance that morning. this place is vibrant.
  • We are big fans of the sf creativity museum. What's great about this museum is that there are many things for my kids to do, ages 4 7 and 10. Usually it's either too old or too young. They love the claymation movie studio, the arts and crafts, puppet show theater area, the karaoke room, the robot coding room and the "mystery box" room. My son also loves the 3d room where you color in various vehicles or buildings and watch them come to life. There's also a nice playground outside. Plan on spending hours there!
  • Cute place for kids. Staff very friendly. Daughter lived the sand box area And draw scan and find your car on the screen. She even was able to sing Moana on a green screen.
