Marbles is a must if you are in Raleigh with children ( under the age of 10). There is so much for them to do and explore. Cost is inexpensive and the kiddos won't want to leave.

This was a great, small museum for about under 10. The cost was just about right for what they have in the building and the kids enjoyed it. Really smart the way they break the rooms up so it doesn’t feel over crowded!

Nice place to take the kids for an afternoon. A lot of things to see and to do with them. You can spend the whole afternoon there and they will no get bored.

This is a wonderful place for children. There are so manyexhibits for children. It was hard to get my grandchildren to leave. The only drawback is that it is busy!
