  • Took my 3 1/2 year old grandchild She played for 3 hours. Museum is a bad name as it is really a play space. And a very creative one. You can't be worried about germs as the toys are very handled and ...  more »
  • Very disappointed! Visited museum with 2 1/2 yr old and and stayed only one hour as there was not much to really capture his interest. Museum is small with mostly imaginative play, dress up activities...  more »
  • spending time at the museum was great Lots of activities and day to day pretend play. Planned on staying an hour, but kids were entertained for 3 hrs. Very much fun  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
