Follow Ricky, Olivia, and their mom as they play at the Children’s Museum of Phoenix. Watch with your family to show your kiddos what to expect, talk about any concerns, and plan around any potential sensory sensitivities.


Plan with 'Insider Tips'

Prepare best by knowing when, where and how to go.

After adventuring in the Climber, the Book Loft is a great spot to take a break and cozy up for a good story.

Enter the Museum parking lot off of the Van Buren Rd. entrance for covered and uncovered parking options.

If your kiddo is unsure about exploring The Climber or they have mobility limitations, they can check it out on the 3rd floor. Just take the elevator up and go left past the noodle forest.

Food is available for purchase at the Cafe, and guests are welcome to bring their own food or beverages to eat in designated areas. Hot beverages are not allowed, and cold drinks should be in a plastic container with a secure, screw-top lid.

In the art room, noodle forest, and many more places, there are great opportunity to play, learn and explore through touch.

Check out the desert garden when it’s not too hot out and enjoy cacti your kiddos can touch.
