Highly recommend the Children's Museum. Fun for kids of many ages. Even my 6 year old begs to go, especially for the star shows. The We Are Maine exhibit is a big hit, and any visit must include a visit to the fire truck for my 3 year old. Participatory children's theatre is a must for all ages. We go at least once a week, spending anywhere from 1 hour to 6 hours (bring lunch to eat downstairs). The kids play hard and sleep well that night. The only downside is the street parking.

My son loved it. He's just shy of two. This place is definitely geared more towards ages 3 and up i would say

The best place to take your kids from what I've found. 3 floors of fun for hours.

The best Children's museum in all of Portland. Our kiddo had a blast. Definitely recommend spending at least two hours in the ball room to the right when you first walk in.
