    There's a playground type area on the second, third and fourth floors - the third floor one is the best for tiring your kid out. But avoid the sand pit! Fun, but low energy play hides there.

    Great warm weather spot. Fun for kids who like to "drive" cars.

    Good for kids 8 and under. Older kids get bored quickly.

    Take a deep breath and mute the sudden urge to use desinfecting wipes... my kid was very entertained. For a rainy afternoon, I felt like there weren't too many people, which was nice. Def recommend!

    It is an absolutely fun place for small kids, although tickets @$12 is too expensive. Buying their membership package would be much more economical.

    As a parent you're crazy to come here. It's madness. But I'll admit my kid can't stop talking about the fire truck and asks at least once a week to come back. Sigh, use disinfecting wipes aggressively

    It's a MAD HOUSE unless you go first thing when it opens during the week. Total zoo on the weekends.

    Fun interactive children's museum with lots of great spaces for kids to explore. Dora floor, fire engine, sand tables, painting on the white board and splash in the summer are our highlights.

    Children crawl through mouths to learn about digestion, join a pottery class, or draw her own version of a classic Chagall painting at the Children’s Museum.

    Loads of fun but unlike the other museums in the city there's no cafe that's a bummer

    We visited on twice it was so good. I have 2 daughter 3 and 4, they both loved it. They where never bored. They ran from area to area. Their joy was palpable. The staff was friendly and helpful.

    4 floors -Lots of things to do! My 2 yr old grandson had a blast... However, many older kids running around makes it a little unnerving.

    The water tables at City Splash are perfect for the little ones on a hot day. Inside was a little too crazy with older kids overtaking the under 4 Playworks exhibit.

    Not too much thrill if you are older than 6 or 7. The UMIGO exhibit closed today.

    Remember to leave your stroller at home or bring a fold-up! Our FAVORITE museum doesn't have enough space for hundreds of strollers, so we leave our stroller at the free coat check facility.

    Visit the museum and take an interactive approach to learning with exhibits that will blow your little one's mind. Stop at for more interactive learning approaches.

    Didn't like this place. Cery little to no natural light in the building. The Brooklyn children's museum is much better.

    Make sure to check the events calendar when you come. There's always way more going on than just the exhibits--like workshops downstairs with New Vic Teaching Artists!
