    I love, love Pretend City…but more than that, my daughter loves it! The pretend, educational play and activities they have here are amazing. The art studio always has these elaborate and fun art projects, just this alone is worth the money to go. We have been going for a year now and my 3-year-old daughter still can’t get enough. Sometimes we even go 3 days a week and she loves it. I highly recommend Pretend City!!

    The price is a bit steep, but in perspective, well worth it. I paid less at this museum than amusement parks, but I think my daughter (18 months) had AT LEAST as much fun. She also learned a lot. I don’t’ think she would have ever gotten tired of playing there and learning. I would have hoped that one parent could get in free or the child would be for free, but we will just have to refrain from going as much. I wish they had a donation program (since they take donations) where I could bring costumes or toys or props in lieu of payment. BTW, it’s $12.95 per adult and I think it was 9.95 for her? Either way it was $37 for two adults and a child. YOU GO HERE FOR THE KIDS! If you enjoy watching your child have fun and you enjoy playing with your child, that’s all an adult needs. Get a sitter and go elsewhere for adult entertainment, imho.

    We have been to Pretend City often since it opened. I know of no better way to educate children on how the world works, how things are interrelated and connected by systems like money. When my daughter was 5 she immediately went to the grocery store and started loading a cart. At one point I asked her how she was going to pay for all of that and she said, “You’ve got money!” I told her my money wouldn’t work there and that she would have to do something to EARN some money. She was taken aback for a second but then we approached a staff member who assigned her some tasks and she was off to the races! Her favorite activity was harvesting produce at the farm and selling it to the grocery store. It was a great learning experience for her then and many years since. Now that she is 9, she has become interested in philanthropy and making the museum accessible to many more children. This is a place for you AND your children. You both will get much more out of it if you engage them in the environment instead of just turning them loose while you return emails.

    I have a family with six children under 9 years. We have a blast every time we go to Pretend City. I am a fan of my kids using their imagination to play and getting away from screens, televisions, computers, etc. The staff is very friendly and all the play areas are almost always clean and orderly. I’d plan on going during the off-hours when it is not as packed with visitors so your kids can get the best experience. Have fun!

    Pretend City is such a fun place to take your kids to explore and learn and play for the day! The facility is built like a little city inside so there are a ton of things to do! Every staff member that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting is helpful and friendly. If you have yet to go you should definitely check it out!
