  • This is a nice little museum that has just undergone major renovations. It is full of hands on exhibits that encourage children to get their hands into the activity up to the elbow. They have a store,...  more »

  • My daughter loved conning here. It is more of a deluxe pretend play space than a museum. There is one room with some stem "exhibits" but they are poorly executed. It is perfect for little ones all the way up to age 6 or 7 if they like role playing.
  • Great place to bring young kids, lots of rooms for play pretend including a bank, store, post office, and theater. Also has a STEM room with marble runs and other sets which is good for older kids too. Watch for free admission days, often one Sunday each month.
  • Let me start this by stating that I applaud all those responsible for the Children's Museum of Saratoga for their presence and efforts. They do a great job with what they have and I am grateful to have a children's museum of any kind in our area. I rate this 3 stars for 2 reasons (none of which may apply to you). 1st: Having experienced many children's museums in many states, I'll just simply say: I wish this was so much more comparable to it's country wide peers. Backers whoever you may be - please consider helping these wonderful people turn this venture into something worthy of it's NY Capital District status. 2nd: As a parent of a special needs toddler - this is just not the place for us. The offerings are either too young for our kiddo or require more "pretend play" then capable. Wish so much there was more in between such as science, large puzzle structures, more art and particularly an outdoor exhibit. I can't stress enough this is a great place for the right kiddo. It just has so much potential to be so much better.
  • This children's museum is fantastic. I highly recommend this place to any parent with young children.
  • Good place for kid birthday parties. The people working there are good and take care of everything. Kids would definitely have a nice time with all the games and it has enough room for parents to hang around too
