The New Childrens Museum, San Diego Reviews

  • We checked out a museum pass from our local library so we didn't pay the admission price which is a nice deal from our libraries. This was the first time we visited. The cafe is nice and the food is healthy. It was a bit pricey for what we got but at least there's food there if you get hungry. Next time, I would probably make sure we've all eaten well before going.The main level was our favorite because of the truck the kids can paint outside and getting to make something out of clay. My kids loved working with clay. You can even leave your masterpiece out to dry in the sun and come back for it later. There are restrooms on every level which is a plus. It was very crowded when we went on a Sunday so definitely give yourself enough time to enjoy all they have to offer.

  • This is one of the top three memberships for parents and kids in San Diego. It's a fun and educational last minute day out for us. Just a hint if you have a membership you can also invite some of your children's friends as long as you don't have more than three kids for free. We cycle through my sons friends every few visits and everyone always has a good time.

  • This place is rad. I’m gonna have to bring the kids next time. Jk, they had a blast and do every time. Seemingly endless amount of activities at this wonderful place. I have been taking my kids to kids’ museums their whole lives (10 yrs) and I’ve seen them in at least 5 states. This one tops them all, so far.

  • Came here for a wedding and catering was 4.5 stars. Air quality is lacking. It needed more air conditioning especially with 170 people in the building. Outdoor setting was nice. Will definitely consider this place for other events but maybe with less people if they haven’t upgraded the air circulation.

  • Kids love this place and me too. I love the clay play area where anyone can spend countless numbers of fun and creative hours. My kids love this place since they were age 3. Only one point i dont like is the parking, its either full or very expensive.
