    I was hoping for a little more. The carousel is great, but it's $5/ride. Give it a try and maybe your kid will love it!

    The museum is located on Corona Heights Park and focuses on the cultures & environments of Bay Area SF. Museum is mainly for education of children , which includes workshops of arts , science, crafts & nature.
    Museum has three floors, the exhibits are on main & lower levels, whereas upper level is reserved for class rooms.
    The California inhabitants display at main level is worth watching. Also the toy train at lower levels is source of attraction for children.
    We appreciate the creativity & curiosity generated during our visit to this place.

    The location of museum is awesome!

    We held our son's 4th birthday party at the de Young and it was fantastic. We had a private docent tour of the amazing African mask exhibit. Afterwards, our group gathered in a private art room on upper floor with one of resident children's artists. Materials were provided for each child to make their own mask. We had a mask cake made and the invitations were themed as well.

    Each of our guests commented on what a great time they had and how much they appreciated the warm welcome the children received.

    We also attended several weekend workshops for Art for Children and that was fantastic as well. They clearly value all their members, young or old.
