Things to do in FORT WAYNE with kids

Fort Wayne is a big city with an even bigger heart! A true American city with a warm welcome, amazing family day out ideas and a big Indiana smile!

Any trip to this amazing city should start with the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo, with over 1,500 animals across 42 amazing acres! If kids prefer a fascinating and fun museum, then Fort Wayne can deliver there too!

Science Central can test their imagination (and those rules of gravity!) with their fun hands-on exhibits, or those art loving kids will enjoy the Museum of Art. Don’t worry - there are hands-on activities there too!

Want to explore some beautiful nature with the family? Then head to the Botanical Conservatory where waterfalls and gardens are ready to be explored. 

Feeling active? Once you’ve finished running in one of the many parks in the city, there are places like Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park to bounce the day away! 

Plenty of kids fun things to go in Fort Wayne, but where to start? Whatever you choose, your kids will have a great time!
