The Children's Museum offers a great variety of play and learning opportunities for a wide range of ages. Considerable thought has obviously gone into formulating the play and learning experiences. Paso Robles should be proud of having a facility that compares well to what is offered in major metro areas.

Our granddaughter really enjoyed this place when we visited my parents in the area. So much to do and explore! Could use a little more TLC in maintaining some of the discovery areas, but overall just a great experience.

Great if you are traveling through the area and need somewhere to burn the kids energy.. or just if you are in town and need somewhere to take the wild ones. This place is loads of fun for at least 2 hours minimum. We could stay there all day if our kids made the rules. Clean restrooms, friendly staff. Your... More

Membership is a great value. Kids from very young to 10 love it. Newer updated outdoor space is lots of fun

We thoroughly enjoyed this museum with our four young grandsons. It was interactive, educational, entertaining, and so much more. Their mom and dad will definitely be getting a family pass; a two hour visit was just not enough time.

We took a 3 and 8 year old here on a Saturday afternoon. Is was busy and a little hectic, but both of the boys had a great time. The fire truck was also a big hit,

This was a fun stop over for kids during our road trip down from Monterey Bay to SoCal. There's a real fire truck the kids can play on and there are kid-size firefighter boots and jacket they can put on. Upstairs, the kids can do arts & craft or play with contraptions called Newton's Playhouse or play dress-up with costumes.... More

Located right off the town square in the heart of Paso Robles, this little museum is perfect for kids from 2 to the grandparents. Our family vacationed in Paso for the Thanksgiving holiday and on a rainy day, parents, grandparents, babe in arms, and 3-year old walked in dripping wet to a lovely warm welcome. Honestly, we hadn't expected much,... More

When I left Paso the children museum was not there. I brought my son and was surprised on how great this was. It's a small building, but they have it set up so well. On the main level they have a fire truck, a ball pit grape stomp and a puppet theater. There is also a place for toddlers. Upstairs... More

The museum is located in a previously used fire house. It is small but has two stories of things to do. They have the traditional area where children can play in layers of plastic balls; a real fire truck they can sit in; play horses to sit on; a make believe plastic kitchen; vacuum air tubes that suck plastic balls...
