Went for a 3 year old's birthday. My 2 year old had a blast playing in each of the centers. It was pretty cool, with lots to do. The bubble room, train and car racing ramp was our favorites. Some of the exhibits are showing some wear, but I doubt the kids even notice or care. The outside playground is... More

I took my son here last summer when nothing was really open and it was too hot to play outside for long. My son LOVED it!! We bought an annual pass and have used it a few times. It's paid for itself already.

Cheap day of fun. They even allow you to bring lunch in or leave and bring lunch back. My 6 yr old and 6 month old both have fun. Great place to play all day where it is cool.

We had our 3 youngest grandchildren for a week in July and wanted to go somewhere they could have fun and we could enjoy air conditioning during the hot summer. We found the right place. This hands on museum was really fun for the kids and the price was really good. There is a bank replica, dinosaur dig, hospital, farm.... More

My grandkids love coming to the museum every time they come to see me. It's a safe place with great AC in the summer time. Lots of fun things for the kids to do, very interactive.

This is a great place for kiddos from toddler age through 10 or so. Our kids have been going here for several years. We hear they are expanding the outdoor area. It's perfect for field trips, an afternoon with grand kids or a cool place for mom and dad to hang out while the kids play and learn till they... More

Kids of all ages will love this museum! I would have been in heaven at a place like this when I was a child! Replica court room, farm items, vet clinic, bubble room, miniature train to ride on, dress up area with stage, grocery store, and on and on! Amazing place!

We wanted to try something a little different and had heard great things about the Northeast Texas Children's Museum. The price was great, the facility was clean, staff was pleasant. However, what we found was a free-for-all of poorly behaved children playing in a land of misfit toys. It's not a museum as much as it is an assortment of... More

I took my 2 yr old here. He loves it. So much for him to do. I've been to the one in the Perot Museum and hated it. This one is so much larger and far less crowded. Only downfall is we live in Garland. But when ever we have a chance I take him there.
