Muse magazine is a children's magazine aimed at kids between the ages of nine and fourteen who love to learn about new things. The magazine delights children with stimulating images, articles on space, information on genetics, and more. It is sponsored by the Smithsonian, so you can be sure your child will be getting solid information.

Muse magazine has articles about just about anything your child could want to know about the world. If your child likes to learn about physics, math, or earth sciences, there are full-page articles about scientists, mathematicians, problem solving, and the way the planet works, so they will be more educated than ever.

The magazine is great for children of either gender, and it is written in a way that allows kids to easily read and understand the text. The readings are designed to challenge the minds of young readers, so your child will be able to learn and develop critical thinking skills. With beautiful imagery from rain forests, the universe, and more, your child can see what the world and space offer.

Stimulate your child's imagination and taste for knowledge with this magazine, which answers almost any question he could ask. Whether your child is interested in genetics and why he has freckles or the visual arts and color palettes, Muse magazine will provide the answers and interesting facts about the subjects that will delight. Curious children will enjoy reading the varied articles, and the interesting variety of topics helps introduce different things to young minds.

5.0 out of 5 stars My son reads it cover to cover! October 17, 2005
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
Muse is an exceptional magazine. Though it is aimed at "tweens", gifted readers from about age 7 up can appreciate it. Parents may wish to pre-read or discuss controversial pieces with their children. There are plenty of interesting articles on a variety of topics. Recent issues have covered stone disks in the Yap islands, gamers making real money from selling virtual goods, racial prejudice, genetics, and snowflakes.

Muse magazine does not contain any advertising, other than subscription offers from the publisher. It's quite refreshing. Some of my family's other magazines (Sports Illustrated Kids, for example) are filled with ads for junk food and toys.

A full page in Muse is always devoted to Larry Gonick's "Kokopelli & Company", a cartoon featuring the magazine's quirky cartoon mascots. These tiny creatures also cavort on pages throughout the magazine. Bo's Page is another regular feature. Here, readers may learn about a scientific experiment to discover how ants find their way home, or why gorillas eat wood, and vote as to whether humans will survive to the year 2100. The Q & A section has answers to queries submitted by readers. Examples questions are "would time travel actually be possible?" and "what happens when you blow a (soap) bubble in winter?" . Robert Coontz and Rosanne Spector provide clear, and often humorous, answers. Ivars Peterson is the Muse math guru. His "Math Page" offers suduko challenges and other math puzzles as well as articles such as "The Simpsons and Math". Every issue of Muse offers a contest of some sort, tucked into the corner of a two page spread honoring winners of the previous issue's contest. Kids are invited to become living art in a tableau vivant, or to design imaginary money.

I highly recommend Muse for both boys and girls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Muse magazine - the best for anyone November 1, 2003
A Kid's Review
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I'm 13 years old, and I've been getting Muse for a long time. I've never gotten a better magazine. Muse explains everything from nano-technology to sword fighting with good humor, and good information in a way that never gets boring.
Muse is a great magazine because it shows you the world. There are many "themed" magazines, but they always have a broad topic. For example, one of the topics was wierd inventions. There were articles on Micheal Goldberg, contests around the world that featured such wierd inventions, and many other things. These articles were brought to life by the Muses, who will debate with each other and really help explain the articles.
As a member of a journalism class, I can testify as to how hard it is to explain an article to a wide audience in a way that all the audience members can relate to. Muse does a terrific job of enlightening us children in a way that we can all understand. Kudos, Muse. If you're unsure, go to [...] (their site, not mine) and learn about this wonderful gift. I love, my 10-year-old brother loves it, even my parents and my teachers love it. Get it today.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great magazine - terrible policies January 4, 2014
By sec
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This is a great magazine, but the company happily takes your address (and your child's name, if you're lucky enough to have received a gift subscription from a naive relative) and sells it to anyone and everyone. Once I found out about the gift subscription, I called Muse and made sure that our information was marked as "do not sell". They assured me that it was, and then, after my child began receiving credit card offers and real estate solicitation, called back and found out that "oops - it was never marked". Three calls later, they still could not manage to keep from selling our child's information. I told them that I was cancelling the subscription because of this, and their response was pretty much a shrug. They told me that it was my problem, and that next time I should ask to have our information kept private. Not a good attitude when you publish for kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars A World to Escape to February 14, 2004
A Kid's Review
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I am just turning 11 years old, and have already found out more than literacy, arithmacy, and spelling. I have learned about Goldberg machines, swords, moon hoaxes (?), ancient mummies, cats, dogs, and why we get hiccups. I have learned how directors create movie monsters, how some beleive the world will someday come to an end, and about the theories of "Snowball Earth." And these are only 10 of the literely 100's of things I've learned. This is all thanks to Muse Magazine. It is Muse that teaches hundreds, thousands, possibly millions of things to children all over the world. Things from the possibility of having the same birthday as another kid in an average 25 student class, to how the modern fork made it's way to the table. And through all this learning, the reader may laugh at the crazy antics of the 9 Muse characters. They don't even think about the learning going on, and if they did compare it to their history class, taught by the monotone voice of unenthusiastic Mr. Boring, then they'd refuse to go to school, and demand a new Muse every day. This is a world to escape to for them, a place for learning and laughs, things very important to loving parents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sophisticated stuff, interesting for kids August 4, 2006
Subscription Term Name:1 year
If I listed the topics Muse covers, you'd never imagine

that anyone would be excited about it. It's just

so well done, though. My kids read it instantly,

cover to cover, and they even push it to their friend's

parents.

Even more oddly, most of it is good for adults, too.

At least, for adults who haven't had all the curiosity

and silliness beaten out of them. And, it's even right!

(I used an article in a University course I teach.)

It has a little of the flavour of Buckaroo Banzai,

of Dark Star (the Movie), of Larry Gonick's Cartoon Guides,

a touch of (but only a touch) of Horrible Histories...

There isn't anything quite like it. I hope they can

keep it up.
