  • Although you must pay for parking on the week days, did you know that there is a public park just with in the gates of this museum? It's enchanting. A music garden, water fountain, dragons, a unicorn you can ride on, climbing equipment. It's wonderful. Despite the number of homeless that gather in the park across the street, they don't venture inside these gates and I felt safe with my children. No public bathroom outside though. Checkout the amazing architecture and stain glass of this beautiful building.
  • Nice place to bring your kids so they can have some fun and learn something. Its ok. If you can, go to the one in Phoenix. Personally, I like it more. But it comes down to your kids having fun and there's no other place in town like this one. Just cross your fingers there is not a school having a field trip to this place when you decide to visit.
  • It would be absolutely wonderful if half the exhibits weren't broken or closed off. The bathrooms are filthy, nobody picks up after the kids so toys/items are just scattered all over the place, and there are two whole rooms with basically nothing in them. For two parents and one kid we paid $24 for admission. I'd rather pay $30 and have working, clean exhibits. So disappointed. We were really excited about coming here. The staff at least are friendly, and a few of the exhibitsong that did work were pretty cool.
  • Absolutely loved it! Prices are not ridiculous but are high. My one year old was asleep at the beginning but my mom and my 18 year old nephew and I all had lots of fun. My son really loved everything he was awake for. We were on a time limit but would have loved to spend more time if we could have. Great for all ages!!!
  • My kids had a good time. I have been to better children's museums in big cities but this one is pretty good too. I think your kids will have lots of fun.
