    A great place to bring young children. Plenty of exhibits and displays for children to interact with, plus supervised arts and crafts and a freeform wooden train layout (tracks and trains) in the Centennial room downstairs. The multimedia show is entertaining but more suitable/enjoyable for slightly older children (4+). The carousel (mostly fairytale animals, not horses) is an additional fee. Accessible by public transit (bus) with free parking for members or park on street. Onsite cafeteria is okay for a museum if pricey. Bring your own food if you can. The museum shop is chock full of toys for kids, so avoid if your child has problems hearing “no”. If you’re a member don’t forget to ask for your 10% discount. If your child is still full of energy, the museum is right in the middle of Fairmount park so there are plenty of places to let them run around.

    I have 5 and 8 year old girls and was sceptical about paying the cost of admission after reading reviews. We went this weekend and my girls loved it! We have been to the Hands-on-House in Lancaster and this is so much better. The Wonderland exhibit is amazing. My girls dressed up like Alice and the White Rabbit and had a tea party with the Mad Hatter and March Hare and then painted the white roses red. They helped to “build” life size cars, “worked” in the emergency room and spent about an hour in the grocery store..”shopping”, “baking” bread, working at the register, putting things back to stock, etc. They also played in the music and water areas. We were there for 3 hours and didn’t get to everything so we upgraded to a family membership because it pays for itself in 2 visits.

    This is a great place to spend the day with kids. Our kids loved the outer space section, the Alice in wonderland area…actually they loved it all. They didn’t want to leave. We didn’t bring any of our own food and I am not sure if you can or not, but if you can bring food you should. The cafe there was very expensive and not worth it at all.
