Where are we going today?

Learning is so much fun, but it can be REALLY fun if you get to learn through creative and imaginative play! The Marbles Kids Museum is ALL about letting kids imagine, discover and learn through the interactive exhibits. It's all about purposeful play at this fun museum!

Each of the exhibits within the Marbles Kids Museum are designed to build the kids imagination, and to encourage self-led exploration of new ideas!

Those musical kids can tap into their musical genius with TreeTunes, which allows them to explore melodies inspired by the great outdoors. Maybe they want to bring their own world down to size in the Around Town exhibit, which features a pint sized version of the world. Kids can really take charge as they explore the bustling town. Maybe they want to visit the farm, or perhaps the vet. Those future firefighters will be in their element too!

Curious kids under 3 years can discover the magic of the woods and all of the woodland creatures at the Toddler Hollow. Watch out for those pixies hiding away too! Kids can make a splash as they discover the power of water fun, or they can explore the garden and see fresh herbs and produce growing - a great way to learn where food comes from!

Powerful play is at the forefront in the Kid Grid, where kids have to keep the power flowing, or they can get creative and express themselves in the Art Loft, where they can draw, paint, sculpt and explore all of the various types of art work.

From STEM based exhibits, to design and construction, to the colorful world of money, there will be something to keep those inquisitive minds entertained all day at the Marbles Kids Museum!
