Children's Museum of Richmond
Designed especially for young children, this innovative museum lets kids explore the wonders of the world around them and have fun at the same time. All exhibits are interactive and encourage children and adults to participate. The Tour de Tummy teaches about the digestive system as children and adults enter through the giant mouth into the stomach. The museum is located next to the Science Museum of Virginia . Special events occur throughout the year; check the calendar on the Web site.
If you are looking for an air conditioned playground, this is your places. It was a clean, entertaining spaces for our young girls. However, it was not a museum. There was nothing educational or interactive, just a large play area. My husband and I were disappointed.
The Children's Science Museum was amazing. My three granddaughters loved the Art Studio and the Market area the best. The map that was provided helped to locate the proper areas to explore. Milking the cow was quite an experience. We will return to enjoy the tree house, which is now in construction. Again, the exhibits were well done and a great place to take your children. Angie
I love the Childrens Museum. Ive been going there since i was like 5 with my 2 little sisters. My favorite things were always the mouth; even though when it burped at you it stank so bad. And the Mini-Ukrops grocery store; i even work at Ukrops now. I know this sounds dumb but im 18 now and i still love it.
Its a great place to take little kids
Some people say that it is expensive to get into the museum($7 a person) but when you consider all you can do it is very cheap. Kids can do anything from climb in a interactive mouth to being actors/actresses in the playhouse. Other exibits include U-shop which is a mini Ukrops in which children can be cashiers as their parents buy goods from them. There is a apple tree in which children can pick apples and there is a car in which they can drive them home. Other exibits include a kitchen, climbing areas, a cave in which cmor staff give WONDERFUL tours and explanations, there is a water area that resembles the James River, an art studio where there are hundreds of activities that kids can paint,make and take home with them. There are other exibits including an inventors lab where kids use their imaginations to create tall structures and then can even get there picture put on the wall of fame! Trying to beat the summer heat while beating the crowds of a pool? Well come to CMOR and visit the backyard where there are 6 sprinklers in which kids can get wet, water fans that squirt out water and shaded areas in which parents can relax and cool off. There are also HUGE sandboxes with a lot of toys. Are you visiting with kids 3 and under? Come to the museum and visit Little CMOR- an area specifically for children 3 and under, a safe, padded environment with puzzles, books,slides,a mini kitchen, blocks to buld with and much more. So thinking of coming to richmond with you children? Visit the childrens museum of richmond located on broad street and be ready for a great time! And with daily visits from Seymour the dinosaur you never know what you will experience next! Check the website for more upcoming events including Clifford the big red dog,elmo,spiderman and much more!!
I had the opportunity to take my niece here, when I first relocated to the Richmond area. She enjoyed it, and I too had a nice time...learned somethings I didnt know. Nice place for children and families.
We have always enjoyed the Children's Museum, and we have been visiting the museum for many years. Our daughters have a great time playing, using their imaginations, attending special events, and enjoying the art center. We stay most of the day because there is so much to do! Our youngest daughter is now 12 years old and still enjoys the museum. She really likes the special events and really likes to get creative in the art center. The Children's Museum is worth the time and money, and I would recommend it to anyone.
Children enjoy hands-on activities such as arts and crafts, costume dress-up, a giant indoor playground and other playful things that get their imaginations going. This is not to be confused with any old "museum." I visit Richmond every year and this is the first place my daughter asks to go. Once we're there, she never wants to leave. A must see for families!
