  • What a great time. We were in Tuscaloosa for my wife's doctor appointment. To kill some time I took our 5 year old son and 2 year old daughter. They had a blast. Plenty of things to tough, turn , push, pull ,and explore for a few hours of fun. The place is very well kept and the staff was nice. I recommend this place e to anyone looking for a fun and educational place to take your kids.
  • We love this place! My kids are ages 7, 6, and 2 and can spend hours at the museum. We especially love all of the special event days they have.
  • Maybe a little old and dated (I went when I was a child 20 years ago and not too much has changed) but they still have lots of fun activities for kids. It's good to go a couple of times a year especially for the themed Saturday events.
  • I would have given this place 0 stars if possible. Talk about an unfriendly establishment. Showed up with a voucher for free admission through the Smithsonian. No where was it noted that it had to be printed, and the rude woman at the desk wouldn't accept our voucher on our phones. Instead, she pointed to a hand written sign on their counter. We left and drove back the hour home. What year is it there, 1999? Won't be going back to this museum.
  • We had a blast! So much for kids of all ages to do. My 4 year old and 1 year old stayed busy for hours.
