I refuse to step foot in this place ever again. I am a teacher assistant and I went there as part of an elementary school field trip a couple years ago. There were 3 children in wheel chairs. The director, Marlene Brown, treated them like they were second class citizens, acting like they were in the way and how dare they be in her way! To make it worse, the only access from the 3rd floor to the fourth floor is an elevator. The elevator was constantly in use by people who are perfectly able to walk, because of this design flaw. Two of us TA's had children in wheelchairs on the first floor waiting for an elevator for over 20 minutes. One of the staff finally stopped the elevator so we could get off the first floor, but by then one of the kids was so angry and upset he couldn't even enjoy himself. And how could he when he's made to feel like less of a person? Brown should have gone out of her way to help us out, or at least be kind! Because of this incident, and the fact that they are way overpriced for what they offer, I will never set foot in that building ever again. I would much rather drive all the way out to Rochester to go to the Strong Museum and pay a few dollars more. They offer so much more, especially for the littlest ones.
Museum is expensive for what is offered. Poor lighting, with a haphazard mix of items. My children felt the few "hands-on" items weren�t very interesting. I found the Staff to be quite sullen, they didn't seem excited or interested in the museum, it detracted from the overall atmosphere. Children are chastised for running and/or walking fast by staff, discipline might better be left for Parents.
Currently $8 per person over the age of 1.... but the kids did love it. its in an old historic building that they are restoring... first floor is pretend play (grocery store, dentist office, dress up, school etc) second floor has instruments the kids can play as well as dinosaur display.. third floor has out door stuff (bikes and kyacks, canoes), a few live animals, weather realted things, lego table, train tables and 4th floor has their nasa display as well as a plane that the kids can sit in and pretend to fly. now its not the childrens museum in boston, or the MOST in syracuse, but it is better than other children museums, like the one in Troy, NY (near albany).
