    Well, I can only recommend it to patient parents. Kids having fun but not parents! However, they totally deserve this sacrifice.

    Our 2nd visit in 5 years. A lot of things are out of order. It is for young kids under the age of 8, I would say, maybe even younger.

    Check and see if your membership at your hometown museum gives reciprocal entry - we got in free with our Chicago science and industry membership :)

    This is the perfect place to make you feel like a kid again; Check out the giant inflatable Arthur & 40-foot-tall Hood milk bottle or the Japanese silk merchant’s house and hands-on art studio. Read more

    They apparently changed their rules and don't accept reciprocal memberships they did before. Call to make sure before you go :/

    If you're going to come here at least 4 or 5 times in a year, get a membership! It'll pay for itself.

    The Children's Museum in Boston displays a giant milk bottle on the museum's wharf. If it were real it would hold 50,000 gallons of milk and 8,620 gallons of cream.

    Though the museum is best for ages 1-10, kids ages 11-13 will feel right at home on Friday evenings, 5-9pm, during the $1 entrance fee hours. -- Green Guide Editor

    If you come after 4pm tickets are 1/2 price, but you only have an hour to enjoy. Fun place for kids and kids at heart. Beware of the slippery floors in the bubble room!

    I defy you to find a more frustrating sink in the city of Boston (or indeed the entire Commonwealth) than the one in the Bubble Room here.

    The Au Bon Pain Express is good in a pinch, but very limited for selection. Pack a soft cooler instead and stuff in a backpack.

    members get in an hour early on the weekends. Hands down the best time to be there, before the crowds kick in. Plus much easier to park at that time.
