  • As I live in Tucson, I have had occasion to visit the Children's Museum many times both with my children and grandchildren. While it is MUCH improved since my kids were young, it still isn't up to sta...  read more »
  • Children of all ages will love this museum. There are many different exhibits most of which are interactive. It is educational yet very much fun for all 
  • A great fun learning experience for the kids. Interesting things for the kids to explore and it's interesting watching kids play and see what they learn with the different environments. I think if it'...  read more »
  • 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!!!
  • Tucson classic is always a must for parents with kids. Cheap and expansive museum has hours of activities for kids, and is still fun for their parents. Staff is friendly and professional. Exhibits explore a range of scientific and artistic subjects and are steadily changed and upgraded. An emphasis is put on creative play and interaction. Reduced admission days each month, so contact them to check on that before you go, but know that those days are especially crowded. A must for a parent visiting Tucson, and a regular pass time for locals.
  • Yesterday was the School Readiness Night and my husband and I arrived 30 minutes early. My husband was in the Marine Corps for 8 years, so we are use to arriving 15 minutes prior to the 15 minutes prior. We live on Valencia, and were worried about getting stuck in 5 o'clock traffic. Well to our dismay we were told we would have to wait outside. Then what is the point of their "waiting" area? I have a 3 year old and a 4 year old. This is Arizona. It's hot! My children were turning red waiting in the shade, so we had to drive around in our car. If my oldest wasn't so excited about going to "school" we would have just left. We came back exactly at 530 to a long line. Now we were last in line and had to pay for more parking since we lost our meter. My oldest daughter was red, sweaty, and so disappointed. We had to stop waiting in line because my 3 year old was red and sweating as well. It was not worth waiting any longer in the heat while my daughters were extremely uncomfortable in the 108 degree weather. Poor management and poor planning. People who arrived early should have been allowed to check in and wait in the "Waiting" Area! So many small children and even a baby had to wait outside in the heat. Completely unacceptable!
  • The children's museum is one of the best spots in Tucson for kids! We have a membership, and my kids have fun even after more than a dozen visits. The best part is that its very close to the light rail, and quick train ride and Kids Museum is one my boys favorite days!
