This is a great place for kids to explore, learn, and just have fun.It is as it should be- kid friendly. It is staffed by people that encourage the kids to try things out. For those with young kids, there is a nice carpeted reading area, as well as lots of learning/ play "stuff"- older kids an explore the newer exhibits.It is for kids up till about eight years. Location can't be beat-on the upper west side -83rd street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. There are plenty of restaurants choices on Broadway and Amsterdam. Time recommendation depends on age of kid. IT is good for about an hour for the really young ones.

I found this museum disappointing. The games and other events weren't as good as I had hoped.

We went on a Saturday and it was packed. You could hardly move and it was very expensive. Our two young children had enough to occupy them for about an hour. Luckily, it is in a great location and something to do on a cold or rainy day.

We have been here countless times. They change some of the exhibits, but not others. my kids enjoy seeing the familiar ones, and also exploring the new ones. I think it's time very well spent for kids 5 and under. When we go, they are happy for hours and it's hard to get them out. for kids over 5 or 6 years old, i think there is a little less to keep them occupied for hours, maybe one third of the museum is for the kids a little older, say up to age 12
