Dallas Children's Museum
This museum is a completely hands-on exhibit. A variety of well-planned play areas give children the opportunity to shop for groceries, produce a puppet show, involve themselves in computer games and much more. Games, art and music areas abound with plenty of toys and will delight children of all ages with different interests. Call ahead for group rates and admission details. The staff is helpful enough to provide ample assistance.
The worst museum I've taken my kids to in Texas. The exhibits were not maintained and dirty. Poor excuse for any type of learning environment for children. As th previous poster mentioned, over priced and over crowded should have just went straight to the hotel pool or six flags.
This place was like a dirty, low end day-care. I never write online reviews but of all the things I have done with my son since he was born, this one was the worst. If you go to this area, visit the Texas Discovery Gardens, the butterfly exhibit was engaging and interesting (also not overcrowded). The Children's "Museum" would not be worth it at any admission price, let alone $10 a person. I now laugh at the fact that I contemplated membership when I arrived.
I am a stay at home mom with a four year old and two year old twins. This place is where I go to get a break. Everything is hands on and open ended and requires little supervision. The only job you do here is reminding your kids to ick up after themselves. It is $5 per person for the whole day. We left and ate lunch, then we could go back in. My kids had a great time with the various centers (especially CiCi's where they use pizzas to teach fractions) and I got to just sit and watch. My four year old begs to go back every week. I would recommend this to anyone with preschoolers and toddlers. My kids love it.
If you have been to other Children's Museums like Houston's or Los Angeles you will be very disappointed. More like an activity. If five dollars per a person for 1 to 2 hours of activities seems fun to you then you will be happy.
Felt more like a daycare than a "museum". The price to get in was too high for the little amount/quality of things for the children to do. The cost was $5 per child/adult - the grandparents even had to pay $5 to get in. In the health care hospital - abot 90% of the drawers were empty. The staff was very cold and unfriendly. The Woodlands Children's Museum (just North of Houston) is the same idea - at the mall.. same price and SO much more to offer. The Dallas Children's Museum might want to consider offering a little more to their customers and providing staff that's a little more friendly and curtious.
I was impressed with the cultural exhibits and craft activities. Although the museum is small, my kids (2 & 4 years old) had a great time. There's a Kroger Grocery Store, a Cici's Pizza place, a doctor's office, a Greek restaurant, and lots of other toys. The price was reasonable as well. It's in a mall which has a very nice carousel, and the food court is there which makes it easier if you have small kids.
The title of this attraction gives the appearance of a structured learning environment. A museum should be full of learning historic facts and one that is for children should be presented in a childlike manner. Having a play grocery store and being able to put on your own puppet show is not what I expected. All the events are in one common area and you can see everything to do from the counter where you enter and pay. To me this is more like a childcare environment than a museum. I will not be revisiting this establishment.
