Sacramento Children's Museum's opened our doors in 2011 with a mission is to spark a passion for life-long learning. We are accomplishing our mission by providing a place where children are encouraged to think for themselves, expand their problem-solving abilities through creative exploration, and exercise both their bodies and their minds. The Museum's hands-on environments provide children with a gateway for opening up their minds to developing new abilities, building confidence, and making connections between their dreams and real world experiences.

The Children's museum seems to be best for children under 8. We have taken our grandchildren there and they always seem to have a good time. There are some rotating exhibits. The annual membership is an especially good deal.

My son wants to have every birthday party for the rest of his life at the Sacramento Children's Museum. He does not realize he will eventually age out. I am always thrilled to see them light up with just the conversation about the children's museum....More

Whenever my grandsons come to visit, we always go here. They are 7 and 5 and find plenty entertainment for almost two hours. Staff is friendly and premises are kept very clean
