This place was fantastic. He held our organization's Holiday Party and Silent Auction here. What a great place for kids. My twins had a blast and the space lend itself so perfectly for our party. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. We moved furniture around since we had to use several table...
The hubby and I went here last weekend to see the Peanuts exhibit. He is a big Charles Schulz fan. I had pretty low expectations because 1. It's Mesa and 2. It's a kids museum. Not exactly how a dink wants to spend their weekend. But we actually really enjoyed the exhibit. There were a ton of kids there who seemed to have a lot of fun getting dressed up and playing with the props. The exhibit definitely had more to offer kids than adults.

Overall, it looked like this place doesn't have much to offer anyone over the age...

Since this museum is about ART why not have areas where kids can wear a smock and paint or create with play-doh? *A colorful mural would help the inside entry inside of...
This place is pretty cool - it has one area geared towards toddlers with soft building blocks, a playhouse and a little art studio. The other side of the building is for 5+ YO kids. There's a black light room where you can draw on the walls with chalk - we loved that! There's a nice art exhibit from local kids and adults. I liked all the interactiv...
I usually love museums for kids because I love playing with all the interactive stuff they usually have. This one, eh, not so much. We only went because they were playing host to a Cactus League exhibit and being the big baseball fans that we are, we obviously had to go. Admission was fair, $6.50 I believe, so I suppos...
