The biggest hit: the art room! Thank you so much for letting my three girls have a blast on Lemonade Day making signs! They were inspired when we got home to have their own stand and donate to our Knoxville animal shelter. My kids have been to ...

LCM may just be my favorite place EVER in New Orleans, more than any bar or music club, restaurant or bedroom. My best first date ever was spent playing house in the New Orleans architecture section, having a puppet show by Mister Roger's House, enclosing ourselves in a giant bubble and then wisking away to the (formerly Schweggman's Grocery) WinnDixie to discover pizza and ice cream before I was rescued by my then-boyfriend from my burning house, being carried out the open window to the safety of his ambulance. Where else can a child-at-heart spend the day playing make believe and actually learning things? I spent my 21st birthday here quite happily forgetting how old I felt Ever since then many a rainy day...

I haven't been here since I was a kid myself! Took the kids yesterday, come to find out it was a free admission day. I still remember when I was young and that bubble you wrap yourself in... or the Winn Dixie ...

Prior to even going to the Children's Museum for the first time, I went online and purchased a membership. I figure I might as well get unlimited access for $55 rather than paying $16 for the kid and I to get in each time. I had heard good things about the Museum from Yelp, co-workers, and family members, so it seemed worthwhile. Anywho, after showing the receptionist my printed out memebership email (while she was on the phone the entire time and didn't say a word to me), I met up with Haley S. and her daughter. Our kids roamed around the toddler area and had a blast. There is a lego table, a train table, a play kitchen complete with cabinets to open and close, books, climbing things, slides, tons of toys, ...

About a year ago, I attended an event at the Children's Museum that was put on by the YLC and/or 504ward and/or some other young professional organizations. There is nothing more outstanding than watching hundreds of mildly inebriated 21-42 year olds shopping for fake groceries, sitting on teeny, tiny chairs at extremely low tables eating dinner and drinking wine, and generally playing and getting drunk and having at least as much fun as the kids who are allowed in this place during regular business hours. My favorite part? Definitely the "attempt-to-trap-yourself-in-a-human-sized-bubble- machine." It's awesome. Fun to watch, fun to do, but actually rather hard and I'm pretty sure I never succeeded in fully ...

Although I'm not a kid, but the height of one, nor do I have any kids I still have been here several times for parties. This is truly a cool space. I love the exhibit...

The Children's Museum is a great place for kids of all ages. It opened when I was still a kid, and my favorite attraction is still there. There is a ring that you can stand in, pull a rope and a bubble forms around you. I loved it when I was a kid and my kid loves it now. There are so many things for kids to do. Many of the attractions also ...

Soo many fun activities for kids, I hope they get the new location at City Park.  Young kids have their own area, but it is rarely monitored for the older kids. ...

Lousiana Children's Museum is amazing!  I was given an opportunity to volunteer there through HandsOn NOLA, and enjoyed every second of it!  They split our group up to work different sections of the museum, and we got to work with multiple elementary school classes.  Not only was it fun for the kids (and us!), but it was educatio...
