The CMOH is easily the nicest children’s museum we’ve been to in the country. We’ve been here twice. Pricing is very fair given the number of activities. My daughter loves the grocery store and restaurant. The outdoor area is very fun for nice days. They...More

Amazing museum. Great activities for kids of all ages. Such a fantastic place to spend the day when it's too hot or rainy to be outside. We went on a Tuesday and it wasn't very busy - perfect.

We could have spent the whole day at the Children's Museum - there is so much to do and see - you can not cover it all with just a few hours.

I agree with the other response that the 16 year old might be too old. The other two would be okay.

Hey, Suzy! The Museum recommends arriving early or arriving late during the day. That also depends on the season; during the school year, crowd comfort is at it's best.

Absolutely! There will be a few things he/she can't do, but as opposed to the things your toddler will be able to do- it's worth it. I've been taking my child since he was a little over 1. Great place!
