We went here so the kids could do something fun, since Vegas is mainly known for adult entertainment. They ended up having a BLAST! They loved that there was different things to do there. We spent majority of a day there when we originally planned on going for a few hours. Definitely recommended for children of ALL ages!

My 4th trip with grandkids to this amazing museum. I loved how excited they were when I told them we were going. Since they are under 13, I have to stay with them. My favorite rooms are the water area and the pirate/castle/theater as there is a place for me to sit. They are very independent in this museum and... More

This is a good place to spend some time with your kids. Ideally for 3-9 year olds, but as long as your kid is walking, 1-3 year olds will be fine too. There is a special room for children under 3 to play in. You can role play in different settings: airport, bank, car shop, kitchen, draw/paint, climb up a... More

Be ready to do some climbing of stairs and chasing your kids! So much to do and see, make sure you have plenty of time for them to enjoy it all.

Visited the museum while on vacation with our kids ages 4 and 6. The price felt a touch steep at first but after staying 2.5 hours it didn't seem too bad after all. The place was very clean and modern and all the staff we encountered were pleasant and engaging. There were 3 different levels to explore with something to... More

Visited with a two year and had a very good two hours or so. The best part was the water feature area. Also there was a car where the wheels could be taken off. Also a ball game.

We have been here a few times and it's expensive but fun for kids. They have some fun arts and crafts tables. They had an instrument/sound show which all the kids loved. There is a fun water area that gets us soaked every time. We spend about 3 hours here each time. The only reason for the 4 and not... More

Brought my kids 5, and 6 here because it was much too hot for any outside activity! The price was reasonable- about $15 per person. Kids were entertained the entire day. There are multiple levels of attractions, science experiments, and games. They had demonstrations- one where they made ice cream with liquid nitrogen and all the kids ate it! The... More

Just when you think Vegas isn't toddler friendly, you find this great museum. Mostly for younger kids. If your kid is almost or already walking, this is a great place to spend a few hrs that will leave them exhausted and ready for a nap or bedtime. Just bring extra set of clothes in case they get wet, and snack... More
