  • The museum has 3 floors (levels) of things for the grandkids to play with. This is an interactive experience for the kids. The play structure will require you to crawl in some places while climbing...  more »
  • I take the grandkids (ages 3 and 5) here nearly every time we visit in Phoenix and they never seem to tire of it. (We purchased the annual family pass.) There's usually something new in the mix, but.....  more »

  • This was our first time here. Get there early, take you kid a bathing suit for the Foam/Sprinkler attraction. It was pretty cool. You can leave the place, dry the kiddos off, change their clothes to dry ones, then go back in for some more fun. They have plenty of restrooms on 3 different floors. Gift shop and endless things for the kid to do. We were there for about 5-6 hours. Money well spent. They give a nice military discount. Think $2-3.00 off regular ticket. All the folks there was nice. Recommend you get there at 9:AM when it opens. Get nice covered parking, free parking right down town. Nice area. This one is a must for kiddos up til about age 10-12.
  • Absolutely an Amazing place for our children! So many things to do. I believe if you plan ahead and get on the website you can sign your child up for classes like cooking, pottery etc.. when we were there we saw some rooms with classes going on and were told they are pre-booked. Nevertheless, the CM is a great place to spend the day with your child. Very educational & fun! We went on a weekday not too many people. Parking was a breeze and plenty of it.
