What is there to do?

Are you excited to experience the expERIEnce Children's Museum in Erie, because there is a world of creativity, inspiration and imagination waiting for kids under 8 years within those museum walls!

The expERIEnce Children's Museum offers a safe, family-centered educational experience via their hands-on activities, interactive exhibit and imagination through play.

Here, kids can race a boat, paint a masterpiece, produce a play, and just imagine a career based on something they LOVE!

This fun and colorful children's museum features over 50 exhibits across three floors, all designed to encourage learning and development through play, and hands-on interaction.

Creative and curious kids are encouraged to touch, experiment, role play, dress up, and be whoever they want to be, and channel what they love.

Kids can experiment with different materials on the light tables, or bring out their creative side and build something amazing with the Lego Wall.

For those little ones in the family, they can enjoy the Baby Garden, specially designed for playful kiddies under 2 years, with soft play and age appropriate activities ideal for their development.

On the Explore Floor, kids can explore the coolest cave in town as they grab their lantern and delve for artifacts, stop by the campfire and check out the cave drawings, or they can make a SPLASH at the Water Table - oneo of the most popular exhibits within the museum.

Don't miss spending some time in Our Town, where kids can role play various roles within a kiddie sized town, just like Mom & Dad! They can be a doctor or a patient, a banker, check X-Rays, solve math problems, and even make a "pizza" in the kitchen!
