Louisiana Children's Museum
Louisiana Children's Museum offers a toddler area and children's drama, dance, and puppet shows. There are also art and science exhibits, as well as hands-on math and physics exhibits, and a reproduction of a television studio. Many of the exhibits are geared toward learning through doing. This style of learning makes it fun for both parents and kids alike. This is a great rainy day field trip and a good place for anyone trying to get away from the "adult" aspects of the city.
As the mother of 4 children ages 6-19 I am always looking for an inexpensive good time. We took our 6 yr old daughter and she had a blast. For $22.50 three of us stayed busy for 4 hours and probably could have spent more time. Take a bottled water as they only have a vending machine cafeteria. Make sure you go to the bubble are so you child can build a good old fashioned soap bubble around their whole body. Highly recommend.
Since my daughter's only 2, I specifically went on a Tuesday at 10:30am where there was supposed to be a Toddler Time with a story reading and an art project which sounded fun. But there wasn't. I was disappointed but my daughter had a blast which is the important thing. For 3 hours she was upstairs playing. Loved the Winn Dixie market, the kid's cafe, and of course the First Adventurers play area for tots. I would come back but if only they were absolutely 100% positive Toddler Time would happen.
The girls went to this museum three times in the course of a week of mostly Jazzfest outings. They loved the grocery store and restaurant upstairs. They also loved the riverboat. There are many activities for a full range of ages. We saw children as young as 2 having a great time, and ours, which are 6-7 loved it. I highly recommend it.
My sister-in-law and I took our kids here while on vacation in New Orleans. Our kids ages ranged from 1 to 11. All the kids found something of interest/fun here. It was a nice surprise in a city that can be geared for adults.
