Nice place to take the kids for an afternoon. A lot of things to see and to do with them. You can spend the whole afternoon there and they will no get bored.

This is a wonderful place for children. There are so manyexhibits for children. It was hard to get my grandchildren to leave. The only drawback is that it is busy!

Every city in the US needs one of these museums. This is the neatest place offering so many fun things to do!!! I was here for the Power of Play Conference. I think the adults had as much fun as the children. Hopefully I’ll be able to return with my grandchildren someday.

Give that Raleigh is a pretty family friendly type of city (and decent size) you expect this place to be impressive - and it is.

The ship-sea area is popular. The sports are is pretty cool as well. There's an area for building, an area for art, an area to play with fire trucks, farm animals, etc.

All in all a lot for the kids to see - though often very crowded, so don't expect a lot of personal space.

I would like to see them add a section with a changing/ rotating theme to add something new for the kids who are members and frequent the museum but otherwise no complaints.

On a snowy then rainy day in Raleigh, NC I took 2 grandkids to Marbles Museum for Children. They had been there before, but I had not (My wife and I are from Columbus, OH). We got there at 9:30 am and they played till 3:00 pm. They wanted to stay longer, but we needed to get back home. They visited every part of the hands on areas and even built a couple things in the "Workshop" area to take home! The grandkids are 8 and 10 and had been there several times but acted like it was their first time there!!!
