The Children's Museum was created as a special place for children and families. The more than 50 hands-on exhibits are designed to engage, educate, stimulate creativity, and encourage interaction between the child and the exhibit as well as the child and parent. It is a unique place where parents interact, play, create, and learn with their children. The Museum also offers a wide variety of educational programs, special events and outreach programs. The Museum retains the home-like atmosphere which makes learning and exploration fun and inviting for both children and adults. Sitting on 55 acres are a miniature train, carousel, playground, pumpkin patch, nature trails, miniature golf course, wild flower meadow, children's alphabet garden, Butterfly garden, Pipi Longstockings playhouse, community gardens, dog park, football field, and acres of wide open space, further enhancing The Children's Museum at Yunker Farm experience.
