Children's Museum Of Richmond - Review
Although the name states that it’s a museum for children, people from all walks of life will enjoy a visit here! The one thing children are told at museums is not touch anything…well, this changes at the Children’s Museum of Richmond. Children are encouraged to touch, climb and explore anything that catches their fancy. For infants under the age of 3, there’s a special place called Little Farm, where they can play, crawl and have fun. A recent addition to the already vast complex is the Living Tree House which contains live specimens or turtles, mice and frogs. There’s no telling what might pique your child’s interest, but one thing’s for sure- it’s going to be difficult to get them out of there!

Children's Museum Of Richmond, Richmond Reviews
Very fun place to take the kids and not worry about them breaking stuff. The museum is built for kids and it has tons of activities for the kids to do. It was quite busy so I would call in advance and see how many field trips are planned for the day before you head over. The parking can also be a challenge so get there early. They are right next to the science museum so if you have older kids you could easily pack two museum trips into one trip.
Very good for kids, lots of activities for them. One day ticket is $9 per person, Annual pass is $140 for entire family. There is water fountains outside also where kids can play so make sure to bring extra set of clothes for them. No good eating joint in here. Overall very good playing area for little kids. Carousel ride is extra, i think $3 per person. Typically you will spend here 3 to 4 hours
Yesterday my brother, myself and my best friend brought her son to visit the museum. While visiting tornado warnings started going off everywhere. The staff was amazing!!!!!! They quickly opened up a safe room for the guests and highly advised that we all stay inside. They set up games and activities for the kids and had staff members reading stories and interacting with the kids to distract them and keep everyone calm in the room. They brought water and snacks for all of us and set up fans to cool everyone down. Tornados were causing damage all around the area and we could hear the alarms going off at VCU. I know the staff had to have been just as afraid as us but they stayed calm and collected while informing us what was happening outside. Once warnings were lifted and we were safe to go, they opened up the carousel and let all the kids ride it for free before leaving and then handed out passes to everyone as we left so we could come back again to visit. I was so so so impressed with the museum and all it had to offer to the kids before this even happened. Now, I can't get over how highly I think of this museum and it's staff! Thank you, that k you and thank you again children's museum of Richmond!
My kids love it there, especially my 6 yr old. Definitely for younger kids. Lots of areas for them to play pretend and use their imagination. Kids want to run through it pretty quickly initially but then you can go back and take your time through it. Place was clean and staff was keeping it picked up. A few items were broken or didn't work. It's a little expensive for what it is, but it was a nice treat. Not something I would do more than once a year or so.
Excellent place to take kids and let them run and play. They have lots of activities for kids. Tree house slide, art and craft area, dinosaur cave, splash Ares for hot summer and lot.
