  • Excellent museum for children. I have an 8 year old special needs boy. Takes a lot to hold his attention. He absolutely loved it. Favorite things were the train exhibit, the water play area, and the carousel. My wife loved it also. Very nice. Live in Jersey City, and even though we were given information on children's museum much closer to us, we will definitely be returning.
  • I love this place surprised my 6 year old a the time had much to do there. Kept him busy for hours, the staff was friendly and lots of kids for him to play with. The place was clean as usual with a lot if staff maintaining it. Loved how you can bring your own food and snacks especially since my family and I are vegan. We go every year and I will continue tradition with my 6 month old also. Also my son loved the bus and car section since there was actual size or close to it.
