sons loved the museum! There was plenty for both boys to do. The baby loved the Lite Bright-type wall. Older son loved the construction roller and the wooden blocks. The water room was so fun!! Brilliant idea...More
great children’s museum! My children 7 and 2 love the water section and I had a great time with them. Cool vacuum hoses which reminded me of old bank teller drive through boxes. Definitely worth the stop!
This is a nice museum for kids. There are a lot of wonderful activities for them, and even on a day when there are lots of kids around, it still was a pleasant experience. It is easy to get to, parking is free (although the...More

Though the Providence Children's Museum is smaller than its counterpart in Boston, there are a lot of the same features -- such as the water tables and the areas for infants to play. We enjoyed this very much with our 6 year old -- lots...More
Kids (7 & 11) loved the water room, but went through the rest of the rooms rather quickly. Outdoor space (It was unfortunately raining/sleeting when we went.) looked neat and the toddler area as well. We (the adults) appreciated the history of Rhode Island exhibit,...More
