I brought my kids here on a whim. It was a rainy day off from school, and they were begging for something to do. I was so glad I thought to look this place up. We spent the entire day going from exhibit to exhibit. The kids were engaged, they were asking questions...

This is one of the best museums in the Phoenix area!  I love bringing my kids here, and they enjoy going. The admission price is very reasonable, and they have free days once a month.  Whether you pay full price or get in for free, it's definitely worth your time. The Museum is spread out enough ...

Wow, what a cool museum!  I went on their free day, which falls on the 1st Sunday of every month but it's absolutely worth full admission price.  My first impression was so cute too because they were letting all the lil kids have fun with sidewalk chalk ar...

We came to the Museum with five children ages 8 to 2 and three adults!  This was the first visit for most of us and we all enjoyed the entire museum! I really enjoyed the dinosaurs and all their exhibits.  The wife enjoyed the Indian exhibit, our friend enjoyed the Spanish Conquistador exhibit.  Of course the kids loved the jail.  They actually went through the jail numerous times.  As for the parents, we're not sure how we feel about all of our children loving "jail time". We panned for gold and found out we were rich, just not monetarily.  We were challenged with the pottery puzzle! And totally amazed by the star exhibit and meteorites!  The kids liked the Flash Flood and waterfall too! The different level...

I recently visited the Arizona Science Center, & today came to check this one out, joined by Mike C.  Ok, it's not the same thing, but I'd say this one rules!  There's plenty to see here, It's fun for both adults & kids.  A couple of the excellent features are an old MINE to go through, & lots of DINOSAURS!!    :...
