  • Great for the kids- maybe 7 and under crowd. Small, but 2 levels and many different rooms. Of course you have to walk through the shop to enter and leave, but distraction works.
  • Great place for kids. Lots of hands on experiences to keep kids engaged. Staff has periodic show and tell times throughout the day including the touching of live snakes!
  • Fun place for young kids. They also do birthday party's and science camp.
  • Fairly small but not too crowded. Some fun construction/building activities, giant chalk board wall, and interactive learning sessions where kids can see and touch various small animals. Our 5, 3, and 1 year-old kids all had a good time for a couple of hours and admission was free with a Boston Children's Museum membership.
  • Cute little children's museum. Kind of small, but that works well for younger kids who don't have the energy for bigger museums. My nephew spent the entire time saying "woah!" and "wow!" to all the exhibits- he especially liked the waterfall and the fish exhibits. The staff was very friendly. Also very affordable- a nice place to spend the afternoon.
