If you’re looking for an indoor activity to keep your children engaged, head to the Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum. Although geared toward children, the hands-on activities here pique the interests of patrons of all ages!
The mission of the Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum is to inspire creativity and wonder through hands-on activities and play. Connect with your children in new ways as you see their imaginations and curiosity come to life! Build your child’s literacy by reading books together or help them build problem-solving skills by investigating manipulatives at the many stations set up around the museum.
Children are natural engineers, and they will love working on the Rigamajig, a collection of wooden planks, wheels, pulleys, nuts, bolts, and ropes that can be put together and taken apart while learning 21st century STEAM skills. Experiment with the wonder of wind in the Wind Tunnel, where you can create your own flying machine from art supplies, test it, and make adjustments as needed, learning important science skills all along the way. Children will also enjoy role-playing in the lifelike train, farmer’s market, and dinner, among many other interesting and creative spaces. There is plenty of fun for the whole family at the Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum!
