Parking can be a little difficult to come by at the Children’s Museum of Phoenix’s small parking lot that fills up quick (probably because others also feel that this place is amazing) but once I walked through the doors I knew that it was worth the trip. Bringing along kids ranging from 1 to 12 years old gave me a full range of feedback from kids of varying age groups. All the children had a blast the Children’s Museum of Phoenix especially at the massive indoor tree house.
The treehouse was several stories high and full of intricate details with recycled items. Upstairs you can find a room with a play grocery store where kids can push a grocery cart around and select grocery items such as canned goods, fruits and veggies, and rice as well as check out at the checkout stand. There other kids work the check stands, bag the groceries, and stock the shelves. I can’t begin to tell you how cute that was and how many photos I took of the children. There was another area where the kids can get on various tricycles and go through a little course. An area for babies and pre-walkers is upstairs which little intricate houses in pastel colors.
There was a small cafeteria but we decided to bring our own lunch. Art classes, exhibits, and activities were also in many of their workshop rooms. Stairs and elevators were available. I must say that it was a very stroller friendly place. Next time you are in Phoenix with pre-teenage children, toddles, and babies, the Children’s Museum of Phoenix is definitely worth a visit.
