    Deteriorated, many things don't work, supplies are low. Children WILL have fun if you interact with them, but the money that comes in the box office doesn't show inside.

    Simply awesome! Pack lightly, though, since the "mom purse" will have to work up small stairs as you go through the museum. Fantastic value for the museum, gift shop was a bust though.

    Central Texans: if choosing between here and Waco's Mayborn Children's Museum...go to Waco.

    Saturday morning 9-10 is exclusive for under 3 years. Great way to avoid the big kids running over your toddler!

    Let your little ones explore the interactive exhibits, get them involved in one of the museum's many programs or send them to summer camp.

    Educational and interactive exhibits. Check out "Austin Kiddie Limits" & let your star shine "on stage." Fun gift shop with goodies for kids of all ages: 0-100.

    The kids had a nice time. Wouldn't recommend if they're older than 10 and storytime is really for 6 and younger.

    Great place to take young children. Lots for them to check out, discover, & play with. Special area for toddlers/babies to play away from the other kids. Story time was a big hit!!
