We visited with our toddler and he loved it. So much for him to do. I agree with reviewers who say it’s not for older children. I would say up to about 6 years would be fine but older children would probably be bored. However we went because there are toddler specific areas which he really enjoyed, as well as some of the other areas. I also have to say that the food in the little cafe was very good! Also the views of the Golden Gate Bridge are superb!

We loved this place and the location. Great place for a day of family outing.
Huge parking lot so easy to find parking. Arrive early if you can!

We took our two little ones here (2 and 1) and they had a ball. There is plenty to entertain very small kids so our 1-year-old, rather than simply following her brother around (as she often does at play places) found entertainment for herself - from water play to hula hoops to rolling balls down walls, she wasn't stumped for an activity all day. All day! What a gift to parents in the bay area!

Out visiting in the bay area with my nephews...4 and 18 months...found this this place. Such a cute museum. Alot of interactive and imaginative play area. Came on a Thursday in September, so it wasn't very crowded. Both boys had alot of fun. A definite for the younger set. Maybe too tame for children 8 to 10 years old unless they have many younger siblings or friends. Most activities are outside so dress appropriately.
