  • What a great space to let the kids explore. I would say it is probably geared to younger kids. The waterplay area on the first floor kept the kids intrigued for a long time and they loved the building...  more »
  • A good tip on cover is this Museum, it is aimed at children, is interactive and playful. My 2-year-old daughter loved every area of the Museum and had a lot of fun.

  • Loved this children's museum. It was perfect for a hot day. Had tons of different activities for kids and was right downtown. There is even a nice park with water fountains (that kids could run in) ou...  more »

  • This was my first visiting with my 6 year old and she loved this place. It is very hands on and interactive. There are displays for all ages to enjoy, so I thought that was great. Children can freely and safely enjoy themselves while using their imaginations and using their creative uniqueness. These were 4 hours well spent with my daughter. I will most certainly return. As an added bonus the art museum is right next door but that is for the next visit!
  • AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!! Absolutely amazing is all I can use to describe this place. Museums are hard to really get a child's interest at it's peak; however, Glazer Children's Museum as cracked the code. Finally a place for kids to learn from the normal type of activities they already take part in. Lego use to showcase engineering; a real-life current flowing through a small-scale river showcases the natural abilities of water; a tiny grocery store to "play" in encourages life skills. This just begins to name a few of the fun-filled activities. All ages will have a blast!!!
  • My kids ages 8 and 4 loved this museum. We have been to other children's museum before but this one was the best. 3 floors of things to do. Unfortunately we only had a couple of hours to see it all due to our schedule. One thing I thought it could be better was security. Only the adults get a wristband, but I felt like that any adult could leave with any child, a simple system like the black light stamp (like chuck e cheese) would greatly increase the safety.
  • They had a very friendly staff! The children loved every minute of being there, they didn't want to leave. There were all kinds of things to do for children different levels and different age groups! We will definitely be going back again! They are a military friendly place, which is very nice!
  • The place was a little empty in some places but still very nice. The prices are decent which is relatively good considering its a huge museum. The people were nice and the activities were great for children who enjoy Science. Overall very good museum.
