Koch Family Childrens Museum Evansville
Where are we going today?
Are you excited to visit a museum where it's ALL about touching, feeling, experimenting, and learning whilst having fun? Let's head to Koch Family Children's Museum in Indiana then - because this is a museum where you won't find any "don't touch" signs!
The Koch Family Children's Museum has been giving kids a great learning experience in Evansville for nearly 10 years, so imagine how much fun there has been over the years! Across 180,000 sq ft of exhibits, there are four main galleries, as well as a multimedia theater, filled with exhibits that each focus on a specific area of development.
There is also the "Speak Loud" area that encourages children to dramatize familiar stories, and even play instruments from around the world! If they are feeling really creative, they can create an artistic masterpiece, and express themselves through music and art. Pretty cool!
There is a Fantastic Plastic station, as well as a Live Well station where there are plenty of fun activities for kids to play with!
Don't miss The Quack Factory either! Here, kids can follow and execute a plan to complete a task, whilst trying to overcome physical challenges such as the 28ft climbing structure! There are also water activities here on the Wet Deck - nothing like making a splash on your family day out!
It's all about the kids at the Koch Family Children's Museum, where play and learning go hand in hand!

Great for kids walking age through early teens. Lots of stuff to keep them busy. Can usually find free, 2 hr parking near entrance. Got great rate on membership - highly recommend!

I went here to get the family membership for $50. This is a great deal since we have 5 children. We bought the membership to join the ASTC (association of science and technology centers) since we were going to NY it got us into most of hte museums there free or at a reduced rate. While we were there my 2 sons 9 and 7 wanted to look at some of the exhibits. I couldnt drag them away from all the cool things there. Anticipating going back with the whole family when the construction is finished.

This is a really nice children's museum! My 7 and 9-year old, along with their friends (ages 7 and 5), had a ball! They particularly liked the water room and the place where you can shoot balls across the room. It was a great way to spend a cold afternoon!
