This is an excellent place to take kids. They've got plenty to keep them interested and it's a great place to beat the heat! They've got attractions to keep most kids busy and happy while learning. It's mostly geared for kids 12 and under, so...More

Awesome indoor activity for long, hot summer days! I wouldn't call it a museum exactly but there are different experiments you can try. My almost 2 year old and 4 year old loved it here and if it weren't for nap time they could have...More

I took my son here when he was 1 1/2 years old. There weren't as many activities for him to play, and it didn't feel very clean or well maintained. I'm a bit spoiled because the Children's Museum in Austin is so amazing.

I brought the kids by when it was 100 outside. The kids loved playing various learning games. The staff was great and welcomed us immediately. We look forward to returning to see the new exhibits.
