    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.

    Even the 7 year olds had a great time

    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.

    If you're looking to meet some nannies this is obviously the place to go

    Jason Shawn · June 27, 2013

    Dora and Diego's World on the second floor is a major highlight here.

    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.

    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!
