This museum, taking its cue from the Boston Museum for Children, designed its workshops very specifically. Through play and interaction, children were to gain a sense of self-reflection and self-insight. And the museum cannot do this without parent participation! As such, every workshop here become a parent-child bonding session with improvements in communication. All the workshops are developed based on intense studies of child psychology.

Children's Museum Reviews & Ratings
A perfect place to take your kid if he/she is more than 3 years old. Everything is in either French or Dutch but that causes no hindrance to the kids. There are kitchens for children and also spaceships to have fun. The best part is that there is no multi-media and kids are free to play and create their own world. There is also a playground outside the main building of the museum and the children can have a lovely time under the sun.
Not bad but really underwhelming. Unless children come in groups, as they do with school visits, the workshops available are really limited. I don't recommend going with a toddler, as there's not a lot to do for younger children.
It is a good place to spend time on a rainy day. Not everything is accessible if you are not french speaking family. Theatre is must see and excellent. Book for cooking immediately as there is only 10 spots per session.
The entrance fee is too high considering to what you can swe inside. they charge to parents too.
Place to keep your kids engaged. 3 hours of fun time for them
