This is a great option for Children's Museum members at the mall - my kids love it! It's not the largest space but the exhibits change often enough and it has the face paint cart which is always a hit. I wish it better contained...More

This is a very condensed version of the MCM. This is best reserved for the youngest of children. My school-agers were bored after 10 mins. We have been members of the St. Paul MCM but they are closed until April 2017. This was great for...More

We try to make it to the museum every year. There is something for all ages and it seems to be ever changing. Everything is hands on and interactive so the kids get to participate. My kids request it anytime we pass through the cities.

This pop up is in the middle of the Mall of America and seems small and simple but my 6 and 8 year old spent hours staying entertained. It's nothing fancy but has some interesting things for kids to learn. The staff also was helpful...More

While I enjoyed many of the exhibits, particularly the Dinosaurs, It was one of the smaller science museums I've been to and was geared towards younger kids, but still very enjoyable.

We have bought a year membership, thinking if we use it at least 4 times a year, we would get our monies worth. We usually only make it once or twice. Gift shop is extremely expensive. Half the floors are closed for renovationsale. When open,...More
