    There's so much to do for kids up to age 9 they don't even realize they are learning how things work. This is a great way to burn up energy and play with other children.  more »

    Took my kids here because we were staying in the hotel across the street. What I really like about this children's museum is that it is entry by donation, so it gives access to those who normally coul...  more »

    Large windows let in plenty of natural light. The "tree house" area offers play phones, an incline climbing wall, a cool little bridge as well as costumes and more. The water area has more than enough room and toys even on very busy days. There is a space ship structure which has levers, knobs, steering wheels and pedal powered wings and engine lights and sounds. The slide is pretty basic yet surprisingly popular. There are always crafts and several types of blocks on offer. There is a comfy reading spot with very cool books and tons of stuffed animals. This place is so awesome even my 11 year old likes it here!

    My toddler loves the Children's Museum! Super friendly staff. Lots of toys for kids to explore. It is imaginative and educational.

    My first time here and I absolutely love it. Everything is in eye sight and it's pay as you go, so free or you can donate. It's amazing and my kids love it. The con is finding parking in the downtown area.

    Tons of fun stuff for small kids. The pirate/space ship was so cool. My 5 year old son played on it for about 2 hours and probably would have played for 2 more if we hadn't left. Parking is kind of annoying, though.
