The Minnesota Children’s Museum

Are you finding the weather a bit too cold? Warm up inside the Minnesota Children’s Museum. There is plenty to keep your young ones occupied. Whether your children are preschool-age or older, there is something for everyone. You can occupy your preschoolers during the week, and take your older children on weekends. It is easy to make everyone happy at the Minnesota Children’s Museum while supporting your community.


If you are finding it much too cold outside for your little ones, you can enjoy the Snowball: Winter Fun exhibit. It is an indoor winter wonderland featuring real snow. You can make snowballs, build an igloo, and carpet skate all while staying warm. This exhibit only runs through Friday January 15, 2016 so don’t miss out!

Your youngsters, birth through the age of eight, will love the Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites exhibit. This exhibit runs until the end of February 2016 and features the storybooks The Tale of Peter Rabbit, Where’s Spot? and Snowy Day. Children can literally immerse themselves into the stories and experience the love of reading.

Animal Secrets is an exciting exhibit that is coming soon. It will feature hands-on activities, and imaginative role-play while discovering what it would be like to be an animal in various outdoor environments including caves, streams, meadows, and forests.
