Akron Children's Museum Reviews
Recently brought my 2 and 10 year old. They loved it. Currently a little hard to find with construction on the main road. Well worth the 5.00 admission for them to play. more »
Our granddaughter is 5, our grandson is 8. It was $5 each to get in. It was a play area sectioned off into different areas of interest. Our 5 year old really enjoyed it, it was a little too young for ... more »
Yes, I agree with others that the prices are reasonable, but reasonable doesn’t help if there’s nothing there to actually play with! My kids still had fun during our visit this week, but definitely not as much fun as they had a year ago when the toys were in much better shape. I feel like everything they picked up was broken, or just sad. Want to build a car to drive down the ramp? - sorry, there are no more LEGO wheels. Want to sail boats in the water? - sorry there’s not actually enough water in the boat area to actually sail them. (Can no one just fill it up?) Want to fly the scarves up the wind tunnel? - J/k there are only 3 of them that you have to share with the 10 other kids that want to play too. Those scarves must cost like $2 on Amazon and they arrive in a day! There was one ball to use on the ramps and I wanted to Lysol my kids after they put on the costumes that smell like sweat. I’m sure those are the same unwashed ones they wore last year. Maybe there are budget issues, maybe we hit it on an off day, or hopefully they are in the process of buying new toys. But until they give the toys a refresh, I’d much rather pay $5 more per kid and go elsewhere.
Awesome place for kids! Nicely priced. They also have a little food court nearby for a quick bite to eat.
