What is there to do?

The Chesapeake Children's Museum is all about giving kids a safe and fun place to play, discover, explore, and learn - not just about themselves, but about the people, technologies, and ecology of the beautiful Chesapeake region!

There are a number of exhibit spaces within the museum that are designed especially with children's learning experiences in mind.

One of the favorite exhibits within the children's museum are the Bay Window Live animals, which are the highlight of this exhibit. Kids can see both aquatic and land-living creatures that represent wildlife in the area, providing firsthand observations of their habits and habitats.

Those imaginations can run wild as kids climb aboard a ten-foot boat and dock to act out their own watermen scenes. Props (life jackets, nets, plush crabs and fish) add to the realism of the exhibit too!

It's not just indoor fun that the kids can enjoy at Chesapeake Children's Museum either. There is an outdoor classroom surrounded by stunning trees, plus Blueberry Hill Fresh food attracts wildlife and teaches children that we are all nourished by living things. 

Don't miss some of the fun workshops that the museum holds across the year, perfect for kiddies! They might be enjoying hands-on railroad-based activities one week, or making gifts the next!
