What is there to do?

It's ALWAYS fun to find somehwere that kids can play and create, and parents can be sure that they are learning at the same time (but chances are they won't realize it!)

The Boston Children's Museum does just that! This fun and very family friendly museum that boasts loads of great hand-on exhibits which are all there just to keep your kids entertained!

The entire museum was designed for children and families, and the exhibits focus on science, culture, environmental awareness, health and fitness, and the arts.

Each of the exhibits bring something special to the kids, and develop their senses, encourage their creativity and get them experimenting! The features includes zones for creative art play, construction, kids' art gallery, kinetic energy studio, theatre, perspective zone, flight simulator, Japanese House and Science Playground. How cool does that sound!?

Inspired by the latest research in early childhood development, the Baby Space is designed to spark exploration and creativity in young children ages 0 to 3, so if you have little ones - never fear! There is something JUST for them!

In this wonderful, whimsical exhibit, children can enjoy the tree house climber with bridges and slide, an extensive interactive toy train landscape, a messy area with see-through painting wall, and an infant area with plenty of soft space for crawlers and a cozy waterbed. The Family Resource Room offers parenting information.

Plus their collections extend to dolls and doll houses, Japanese artifacts, the Native American Collection and natural history.

Sounds pretty awesome to us!
