Great Place for Kids

The kids will really enjoy this educational experience! Many exhibits to stimulate their minds. The price of admission was well worth it.

I took my 2.5 year-old grand daughter here last week on a Friday around 11:00 AM. The museum was not crowded, and she was able to push buttons, "drive" vehicles, "shop" for groceries, and have a great time overall. We were there a little less than 2 hours - enough for a 2 year old. Although she didn't understand the... More

Our granddaughter loved it , especially the southwest style kitchen and also the grocery check out area. A little pricey if you have more than one adult. She would have stayed all day.

The museum is located in the old Library in downtown Tucson. The kids (10-2yrs) had a great time exploring. The biggest hit was the Vet Office, where they could help the stuffed animals get better. The 10 year olds enjoyed the museum more than I thought they would. Give yourself about 2-3 hours to explore and play.

Dropped by this Children's Museum with the grand kids while visiting. It was one of the few disappointments Tucson has offered. Having traveled for so many years we have had some wonderful experiences with kid specific destinations. I cannot put my finger on it specifically but the overall feeling was that of a preschool crossed with a children's area at... More

This Children's museum is big on fun. You can take an hour to visit or spend the entire afternoon. There's a variety of activities covering everything from simple pretend play to more hands on activities. It can get a bit crowded on weekends and event days. In my opinion the primary ages to fully enjoy the museum would be between... More

We had such a fun day at the children's museum. It was nice that there was things the adults could do with the kids. Like playing grocery store or cooking. The kids laughed like crazy at the body noises when playing with the nose and mouth. Great day, very nice and helpful staff. Loved that it was all one floor.
