We have a 2 yr. old and this is a once a month visit for us in Santa Fe. All kinds of interactive displays and fun experiences for her. Gets 4 stars because of the price and the fact that they charge adults. Oh well, it is Santa Fe after all!

While this is probably a decent place for local inhabitants to take kids under 6 for some sensory play indoors, it is not worth the time and trouble for an out of town tourist. I've been to two other much more impressive children's museums in Phoenix, AZ and Olympia, WA. By comparison, this place was kind of a dump. It... More

We were trying to kill a few hours before we checked into our hotel. Our kids loved this place! There was plenty for them to play with for hours. My only complaint, and it's minor, is that there seemed to be a lot closed. I couldn't tell if it was in the construction phase or if it was because it... More

We always try to find a great activities for our daughter on more "adult-trips" like those to Santa Fe. We were extremely happy to find the SF Children's Museum on our most recent trip as it was perfectly suited for her age (3). For two adults & one child admission (3 yo) it was $20. Very reasonable & includes admission... More

We took our grandchild there and watched, and even played with her, as she went from one learning activity to another. So many learning activities and she thought she was playing. We enjoyed the water yroughs and sand pendulum the most.

This museum is very cute they have a small door for kids to go thru and they thought that was awesome. They have a lot of plants growing outside and huge sand pit which the kids played in most of the time. Inside they have a cute stage and puppet show area. The usual bubble area and huge blocks to...

The re-opened museum is full of fun. From bubbles to rolling balls, all of it is interactive. You could easily spend one or two hours totally engaged in activities that delight old and young alike.
