My young children love this place! The new carousel and funky outdoor basketball areas are very nice. They also love many of the spaces inside, but I agree with others that a bit of maintenance or renovation of some of the too-well-loved spaces are needed.

We have avoided going for 3 years due to the expense of the museum ($15/person ages 1-100, $20/person including outdoor splash area, + $3/person carousel and $4 parking) but we were gifted a membership for Christmas. The initial room with the retired police/fire vehicles was...More

My little one had a blast here and we spent a good 2.5 hours here. They could for sure use some updates and fix a few things but otherwise it was a great way to spend the morning!

We had a good time here. Even though I have been to better Children's Museums (Carolina/NYC, Jackson/Mississippi, Brooklyn/NYC). My son loved the airplane, flight simulator and outdoor playground. I would like for the museum to be a lot cleaner and better taken care of. Some...More

We took our 5 year old granddaughter to the Children's Museum - and she had a blast. The hands on exhibits are terrific learning tools - and there is even an outside play area. I thought it was a little pricey at $15 per person...More

My two toddler grandsons love this place! Even though they are very young, there is still a lot for them to enjoy. And as they grow, they will just be able to move on to more mature attractions. What fun!

I don't believe so. We didn't try. They may have a system in place where you can. I would try to call and ask.
