  • Our granddaughter loved it , especially the southwest style kitchen and also the grocery check out area. A little pricey if you have more than one adult. She would have stayed all day. 
  • We were very well with the children of five and two years. Not there is personal that accommodate them toys after use is so inside all is very chaotic and gives wrong aspect, but guess that will be because only there are two teenage charging it entry. The games are very well designed and are fun, but some are very worn. It is worthwhile only if it is the third day of each month and admission is $3. But it is too expensive.

  • 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.
