This is definitely very different from other children museums. Mostly outdoor except for an old train for the kids to color and read books, all activities are outdoors. It looks like with time it'll get bigger with more space indoors. For now kids will enjoy it as long as its not too hot!

Not really organized. Really not a lot to do! the route is not very well marked. Kinda of over priced. the customs were for very young children, were on the ground and dirty.

We visited the children's museum in January and the weather was cool and sunny. I imagine that in the summer, it would not be as much fun, when it is hot and sticky. The outdoor play area built out of the ruins of an old brick building is amazing. My kids (ages 6 and 7) loved it and we stayed... More

This place it within the premises of the train museum and like the latter is missing fixing and maintenance. Still our kids spent here almost 2 hours and they quite enjoyed themselves. There is a small maze that the kids can walk, some slides and different street games. All of the above are outdoors but there is also a small... More

Fun outdoor playground for my 2 year old grandson. We were here a couple of weeks ago for the santa train and came back to play today.

First impresion was a bad one: We couldn't find an obvious entrance, only a gate that looks like an exit. Buy your tickets at the railroad museum gift shop. NOT worth the admission fee! An upper courtyard with a sandbox table, a big xylophone, and a railroad baggage car (the ONLY indoor exhibit). A lower courtyard with about a dozen... More

When I took my two year old niece I had expectations of an indoor/outdoor interactive museum. Instead it was just a fun playground. While my two year old niece had fun I couldn't imagine kids over five enjoying it for very long and I also found the price to be extremely high for an open play area. They have a... More

We took our 2 (1 year and 4.5 years old)children to the museum in early November 2016. We had a lovely time once we were there. However, we had an awful time trying to figure out how to get inside the museum. We walked all over the place until we saw a very small building that said "enter" just above... More

On our first trip to Georgia I chose this destination because the pictures on the website looked really neat. I was visiting with my kids and their cousins - our group had eight kids between 4 and 13. Only the first phase of the museum is complete, the outdoor section. There are a few play areas that are under a... More

So… we were in Savannah for a family vacay. Took the kids (1 three, 1 six) out for the afternoon to what was billed and priced as a "children's museum." Turns out it was just a playground. We complained and were told, "Well, in Phase 2, which is a multi-million dollar development, it WILL be an indoor museum." We did... More
