Where are we going today?
Kids aged 1 to 11, we have something very special to tell you! What if we said there was a museum that was ALL about you. That's exactly what WOW Children's Museum is all about!
WOW, which stands for World Of Wonder, has a number of fun exhibits JUST for kids aged 1 to 11. These exhibits each teach kids something different, and assist their development as they grow. They also learn as they play, so parents - you can't go wrong!
The exhibits at the WOW Children's Museum cover a range of themes, from science to art, dramatic play and cultural exhibits.
Kids can enjoy the yoga and dance studio, or spend the day playing with bubbles! Those little buccaneers can climb aboard the pirate ship and lighthouse, and have fun in the Light & Shadow room.
If you have little ones in the family, there is a Toddler Beach and Sandbox where kids can play with others their own age, and ensure they have age appropriate activities for them.
If kids really want to embrace that creativity, the Art Room at the WOW Children's Museum is where they want to head!
Here, there are interactive activities, as well as materials that kids can use to create those one of a kind art works!
Get creative at the WOW Children's Museum in Colorado - museums have never been so much fun!

So much fun! My daughter loves the pulley chairs and the giant bubble, but we look forward to new exhibits.

We like coming here! We found out about it when our LO was 9 months old. He loves it there. There is a lot to do and is friendly for crawlers and walkers. It is free up until they are 1 yr!

My kids like the WOW museum and I love the idea of this place, but my kids invariably end up catching a cold just a few days after visiting. Could be cleaner?
