The Children's Museum of Phoenix, housed inside the 70,000 square foot historic Monroe School building (whose pupils included modern art rebel Jackson Pollock) in downtown Phoenix, offers three floors of hands-on fun for the kid in your life. The massive, three-story Climber, constructed of steel, metal, and various recycled materials (including a giant claw-foot bathtub with angel wings, suspended in midair), is stunning. Other highlights include a fully stocked art studio, reading nook, and a "noodle forest"--more than enough to keep the kiddies (and adults) entertained for the day with a visit to this unique, family-friendly facility.
