Might be fun; but too small and crowded for us 3/30/2006

My family and I chose to drive from Greensboro to Raleigh to check out Playspace one day. People had raved about Playspace to us for a few years. What a disappointing endeavor. Playspace can't begin to compare to Greensboro Children's Museum. We should've never left home. Yes, there is lots to do at Playspace -- child-size models of an ambulance and a fire truck; grocery store area; dress-up area; music room; block area. Yes, the staff is friendly and helpful. That all said, this museum is small and tends to always feel crowded. Even when there are not alot of children there, it feels crowded. There is tons to do -- just not lots of room to move whether there are tons of kids or not. The activities/areas are not well spaced apart, thus you feel like the grocery store is on top of the ambulance/paramedic area. I was very disappointed with the layout of this children's museum. I was also disappointed in the child-size models of the ambulance and fire truck. Yes, they look like the real thing shrunk to a child's size; but I find it more impressive when a children's museum has an actual ambulance/fire truck for the children to crawl through and pretend to drive. I guess if this was the only children's type museum I had ever experienced, I would rave and rave about it. Unfortunately for Playspace, I have visited other children's museums to know that Playspace is NOT the bomb that the locals believe it to be. Admission cost is par for this type establishment. Parking is good. Hours are as expected. more

The place to be for toddlers! 12/1/2005

Playspace is a called a children's museum but it is more of an indoor playspot. They have great climbing stuff, an art room, a music room, lots of costumes, and my son's favorite--a mini-grocery store. It is for ages birth to 7 but the toddlers rule here--they run around from one thing to another and they really do have fun, perfect place for a little people play date! more

Fun for young children 8/15/2005

Playspace Children's Museum offers a wonderful environment for young children. There are several rooms with different themes, space ship, pirate's boat, theater with dress up clothes, kitchen, ambulance and music room for example. They will host your child's birthday party. Hours are perfectly thought out for the typical child's schedule. They are open on Saturdays. more

Fun for the whole family! 8/13/2005

I took my neighbor's kids here one day (they are 3, 5, & 8) and they all had a blast! There is a wide variety of great activities! The children's favorite was a section where you can play dress up and act out a play or something on stage, while on camera and can view themselves on a screen. They played for what seemed like forever with that activity. I would highly recommend! more

Wonderful! 7/31/2005

This non-profit children's museum offers a great venue for kids to play and explore. They have a number of play areas with donated "real-life" items, such as a hospital/clinic with an incubator, an ATM with an inactivated card, a grocery store with scales and cash register, and more. There is a puppet theater, and a dress-up area next to a stage with a closed circuit camera so the children can put on plays and see themselves on screen. There is also a crafts area. They offer special programs, and are available for on-site birthday parties. more
