Educational entertainment custom made for the young. – Overview
New Orleans is not the most child-oriented city, but this exceptional attraction was designed with kids specifically in mind. Situated far from the debauchery of Bourbon Street, the mid-19th century sugar warehouse the museum calls home is historically significant, but that's not why you visit.
Dozens of interactive and high-tech hands-on exhibits, particularly favored by kids up to 12 years old. Little ones can choose from a fully stocked grocery store and a great replica of a television news studio. For low-tech traditionalists, there are arts and craft workshops, puppet shows, scavenger hunts and lots of dinosaurs. Parents are not only encouraged to join their children here--those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. A snack bar and cool museum store will keep you busy if you find yourself in the highly unlikely position of being bored.
Great place for kids and adults – Lots of things to do and see for kids and adult; educational as well as play time.
