Nature Play Area


Our outdoor natural play-scape is where children can explore in our stream and sand play areas during Spring, Summer and Fall. Kids can also slide and create mud pies and plant in the garden. Watch for special nature programs about bugs and animals after the snow melts.

Activity Centers


Baby Zone

The Baby Zone is an exhibit for visitors from 0 to 18 months of age. In this aquatic- and nature-themed area, your baby can practice rolling, crawling, climbing, cruising and all-around play in a safe environment.

Art Studio

Our Art Studio has exploratory art activities for you and your child any time the museum is open. In this self-service area, visitors have access to washable paints, markers, crayons, paper in many sizes and colors. Children will also enjoy using clay and implements. We also offer classes in the studio, such as Messy Art and Messy Science.


Indoor Play Stucture

The Play Structure has a slide and climbing wall. It's a great place for kids to use up all that energy and is an excellent tool for your children to gain gross motor skill development - especially during winter when getting outside is difficult due to inclement weather. The stairs to the slide are easy enough for younger visitors to navigate. This part of the museum also has a custom train table and magnetic building tiles.
