We visited The Museum of Play with two 4 year olds and almost 2 year old. While all 3 kids had a blast, there are some things that I didn't particularly care about our visit.
1. $15 admission for ages 2 and up is quite pricey. So this is not something most families would say is affordable, in my opinion. So just to get in for my 4 year old son and I was $30. I knew it was going to be expensive but I believe I've paid less for admission in the past (other trips were in 2015 & 2016, so it's been a while).
2. Parents need to pay attention to their kids. Seriously, put down your phones and engage with your children! Some of the other children are completely unattended and do what they please, while mom and dad do not step in at all when their kids are being rude. One incident, was an older child who sat in a car and refused to let any other children take a turn. When there were clearly other kids wanting to take a turn "driving". Another was when an older girl nearly knocked my younger child over to grab an egg from the chicken coop in the Bearnstein Bears exhibit and ripped it from her hand. These incidents left both of my children and myself extremely frustrated. And unfortunately these incidents almost ruined our visit.
With that being said, the children really enjoyed the Sesame Street exhibit, Thomas the Tank Engine, dressing up with costumes, playing in the "rocks"/dump truck on the upper level, and taking care of the teddy bears! My son alsp enjoyed the comic books/superhero exhibit, as his latest obsession is with Spiderman. Lastly, we all enjoyed a ride on the carousel! We easily spent 4 hours here, and it was a great way for them to burn some energy. They had tons of fun (minus some bad apples spoiling the bunch), and that's all that really matters to me!
