Children's Museums are essential community resources 
where play inspires creativity and a life-long love of learning through hands-on interactive exhibits and exploration of environments designed just for them!


Art Studio: At the Children's Museum, it's okay to paint on the wall; it's even encouraged! Paint with brushes, 
markers, shaving cream and even pudding! 
Paint medium rotates weekly, see museum schedule for details. 

Exploration Station: Sensory tables cleaned daily and rotated weekly, children love exploring in sand, water, bubbles, 
rice, beans, and more!

Indoor Playloft: Rain or shine, the Children's Museum is open for your little ones to get out some of that positive energy. Climbing, sliding, swinging, and more in a child-friendly and safe climate-controlled environment.

Imagination Station: A post office, grocery store, vet's office, fire station, or whatever else you can pretend it to be, this space is filled with materials to encourage dramatic play and rotated weekly to inspire new ideas and experiences.

Construction Zone: Here children build with blocks of all shapes and sizes and manipulate many other hands-on learning materials, all while constructing new knowledge 
and developing new skills! 

MagnaPalooza: Come explore with magnets on our kid-sized magnet wall. Fun for all ages... build a marble run, make a silly story, create a beautiful picture and more with magnets!

Learning Lab: Every little scientist needs a laboratory and we've got it! Watch live caterpillars turn into butterflies, observe ants burrowing tunnels in an ant farm, 
see tadpoles evolve into frogs, there's always 
something new to see at the Children's Museum. 

Reading Oasis: Curl up in a comfy spot with a good book

Picnic Garden: Invite friends and playmates for a picnic anytime of year. Bring your own lunch and plan a playdate at the Children's Museum today!
