What People are Saying
My 2 year old had a blast here!! He was running around experimenting all the different settings and atmospheres. I really like how everything in this museum is about getting them to learn an interesting concept or principle. Definitely coming back!Larissa F. (Palo Alto, CA)
I recently joined with my 2 & 4 year old and am very pleased with this place. I didn’t have very high expectations since it’s in an old Abercrombie & Fitch but it has greatly exceeded my expectations. Although it’s so much smaller than the CDM in San Jose, there’s plenty to entertain my kids. It’s actually much less stressful and more enjoyable for me since it’s a lot smaller.Sistrsprkl S.

Fantastic place for toddlers to burn off energy, play and learn. Different activities will help their motor skills, stimulate their imagination and educate especially with help from an adult. What a deal compared to Bay Area admissions. Yay for in and out privileges and wifi. I hope they’d implement a shoes off policy for the safely and cleanliness for all. This is common for indoor play spaces. Please expand to the Bay!Carmina B. (Seattle, WA)
