    Great place for Toddlers. Love the kidspace room on 2nd floor and water exhibit. Bubble exhibit is also one that you don't want miss!

    Pre-kindergarten room is a closed off area, so your little ones are safe from wandering out. Get the membership, it'll quickly be worth it.

    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 :)

    Don't park in LAZ. There are several parking spots discounted by museum, but LAZ isn't even their staff said yes.

    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!

    Take advantage of the volunteers at the museum’s exhibits to answer questions about things ranging from the first day of school to child development.

    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.

    My 18 month old loves the golf ball room and (dodgeball) dance floor.
