We have been coming to the Children's Museum for about six years. Even today my family still loves it. The exhibits are always changing and the quality doesn't fade. Our favorite is the mirror maze and the Dino Sphere but the outdoor area was a great addition. We also have enjoyed some of the rotating exhibits like Avatar, Santa Winter Wonderland, and Visit China. There is a reason this is listed as the best children's museum in the county, you won't be disappointed.
One of the best children's museums in America. My kids loved it when they were young. Great activities with an educational and fun focus. Lots of eating places, too. Parking is not free but lots of spaces. Easy to get there via public transportation. The docents are knowledgeable and friendly.
