Tips for Families

A museum membership is a great option for families that plan to visit several times throughout the year because the museum opens to members an hour earlier on weekends.

Tips for Families

On the second floor there is a special Play Space designed for kids 0-3. | There is a very cool Countdown to Kindergarten exhibit. From the mock school bus to the model classroom, this area is sure to help with the transition for the first day of school.

Loved it when I was a kid and now my kids love it.  Reasonably priced and well-curated with many activities and plenty of space.  Only disappointment is that t...

If you go to one museum while visiting Boston, this should be it.  Forget the aquarium or the Museum of Science -- this one is way more fun with cheaper admission prices.  It's great for all ages, from little babies (they have an area just for crawlers) to grown-ups.  It's just...cool.  It has tons of hands-on exhibits to keep kids entertained.  Everything is clean and less chaotic than I anticipated.  There are also bathrooms and changing tables aplenty.   If the weather's nice, pack a picnic or grab some lunch to eat on the picnic tables outside or get some ice cream from the giant milk bottle.   If you have kids under the age of 3, prepare to spend a good chunk of   time in the play area.  It's all very a...

I was here on 7-29-11. Another place I stopped at while I was on vacation with my neice & nephew. This children's museum is located in the heart of Boston . It's an eye catcher so you def won't miss seeing it. It's located on Children's Wharf along the Fort Point Channel. Parking is a pain in the butt though. I honestly didn't know what to expect coming here. My neice & nephew sure did though! The New Balance climbing tower/tube/contraption was def what they were looking for! Kid's get addicted to it, & I can see why. It looks like it's pretty addictive. This museum also has children's shows in which they can participate in throughout the day. There's way too many exhibits to name but just a few that we expe...

This was our first time at the Boston Children's museum.  I've heard it was good, and it didn't disappoint!  The climbing apparatus in the middle of the entryway was worth at least 20 minutes of fun, and the room with the golf balls was also a big hit.  The construction room w...
