McKenna Children's Museum Reviews & Ratings
This is a wonderful place! We were given the tour of the area and not only is the kid's museum and play area amazing... The venue is fantastic for hosting other events. Definitely looking forward to working with their team on future projects for the community!
My kiddos love coming here! There are plenty of areas to play in so it doesn't feel crowded and they never get bored. The outdoor water play is our favorite. I'm taking off one star because adults must pay as well. If you have multiple kids, it would be great to have more than one adult but it comes at a price. However, staff is friendly and they do a great job of keeping things tidy.
This place was phenomenal! It had everything, even tho my 4 and 6 yr old only wanted to play with the water outside...they even accomodated my wife with a wheelchair and were so very excites to help us! Best staff ive ever come in contact with at a place for kids. Everything was clean and well maintained.
My kids absolutely loved this museum! The art room was my favorite but I think the outdoor water feature and jungle gym was their favorite. Compared to San Antonio's Doseum, McKenna seems much better maintained and perhaps even better laid out. The whole thing is designed in a circle around a central baby area with benches for seating. I am knocking this down two stars due to the atmosphere and staff attitude. Even from our orientation I felt like we were intruders and slightly unwelcome. The kids were given a very long list of rules before being allowed to enter. They were not unreasonable rules, per se, but it was the attitude of the whole thing. Throughout the museum, McKenna had far fewer staff to help keep things running smoothly and tidy which I suppose is why they hammer the "clean up after yourself" rule so hard. Further, when I was in that art room I loved so much the staff member in there never spoke one word to me or my kids. Very awkward. Once again, I felt like we were intruding.
We are members. My kids love it here. They are always updating and making it better and novel for the kiddos. They frequently host special events of all kinds. My one complaint is the field trips from daycares or summer camps. The people "watching" the kids are generally very young /teenagers. They aren't totally aware of the children at all times, and my kids have had a lot of problems with those group kiddos taking toys, pushing and shoving, and one instance a kid just dumped a bucket of water on my child and ran away laughing. I would request the museum be more stringent with their chaperone to child ratio and behavior expectations.
