“Great place for kids on rainy or sunny days”

McKenna Children's Museum
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

The Museum looks very new. It's very clean and there's a lot of different activities. I was surprise that a small city like New Braunfels would have such a nice place for young kids.
Highly recommended .

Most of the activities are geared for younger kids (pre school). The kids love shopping at the store, checking out the alligators, and playing outside.

After having a membership with The Children's DoSeum in SA, I switched over to New Braunfels' McKenna Museum. It's less packed and comfy. It's never too packed, and the setting is more intimate for me and my girls! Best features: super-easy face-painting, outer space, and arts & crafts section! ⭐️

The McKenna is a fun children’s museum to visit in New Braunfels. There are lots of fun activities including but not limited to art, a medical learning area, learning about astronauts and space by dressing as an astronaut and going into “space”, driving an ambulance simulator, going “shopping” for play food, and more. Outside, there is a water play area, a web to climb, large cardboard “bricks” for building, and large animal sculptures for pictures. They also have occasional special events that can be found on the website or through Facebook.

This is a wonderful place for children to learn and discover things for themselves. There are activities for toddlers, and for school aged kids. They can experience outer space, shop in a realistic grocery store,, paint and do art activities. There is an outdoor area with water play and huge building blocks that are great for the little ones. The whole place is compact enough in size that you would have difficulty losing or keeping up with your kids. There is an on-site vendor that sells healthy snacks and meals. The museum staff is also very helpful. I buy season passes for my grandkids, so they are also able to attend many special members only events. Definitely bring a camera for the fun shots. Probably your kids should wear clothes that you don’t mind if they get a little dirty or wet.
