This place was so great. We got there right when they opened and it was nice and quiet. My daughter is 15 months old so she couldn't do everything, but since we got there before the crowd she could take her time slowly toddling her way around, we even made it up the big play scape on the bottom floor....

By far the best spot for younger kids in Phoenix. Field trip days are a little rough if you have toddler aged children; on the flip side it is a great place for field trips. Be sure to explore all levels. And if you need a break find a spot in the reading nook!

Visited this museum last summer with my daughter and her children aged 4 & 7. There are lots of displays that are interactive and the kids had a lot of fun running from one to the other and trying them out. There is a big water feature that lets you use balls to see how the water travels from place-to-place... More

The group of children's museums that are located across the US are special places for young children. All of them are great and follow a set of similar developmental concepts. That said, they do not all have the same amount of exhibit space. While many exhibits are the same in concept, many are site specific. The Phoenix Children's Museum is... More

I took some campers here on a field trip for Spring Break last year. It was PACKED. I highly recommend going on a weekday morning if you can, because it's busy otherwise (good for them!). The attractions here are best suited for younger children (pre-school aged), though my young adult staff loved the noodle forest. I know... 'noodle forest...' if... More

This was the most amazing children's museum I've ever been to! I have a 4 year old son, and he had a fantastic time. There were so many different things to do and places to play and learn. We could have stayed all day!

We brought our 4 year old grandson. He loves the pool noodle forest and the treehouse. I'm not sure if it is someplace for kids over 7 or 8. Appeared a lot of things for toddlers.

I have taken my daughter here several times. This is a great way to spend an afternoon for children under about age 8. Three floors of fun, creative activities that encourage imaginative play. Kids can be kids and play the old-fashioned way. As a parent it's fun just watch my kid use her imagination and play with others. We go... More

There is so much to do here for babies up to about age 10 or 11. This is a museum where it's all about touching and playing and experiencing the exhibits. They do rotate them frequently and the exhibits are always unique. The climber in the middle is a particular favorite.
