What is there to do?

Explore & More is a super fun hands-on Children's Museum that offers not only fun interactive exhibits, but exhibits dedicated to providing challenging & educational experiences to help kids grow and develop!

The museum was created by former pre-school teachers, so you know they have created their seven rooms filled with activities designed to be fun, and at the same time, to stimulate the cognitive, small motor, social, and creative development of young minds.

Love history? Of course you do, which is why the 1860's vintage house is a super fun place to start that day of play, which was created for kids aged 3 to 8 years (but can be enjoyed by any age!). Here, kids can play in a Civil War era house, and a general store, and experience what life would have been like in the 19th century!

Those creative kids in the family will love the Art Room, where they can just express themselves through art using a host of fun craft items provided by the museum, including feathers, pipe cleaners, glitter, glue and more!

Future engineers in the family will gravitate towards the Construction Zone, where the hard hat area allows them to use pulleys to hoist heavy loads, experiment with gears, and even seen how far a whisper can travel!

The Nature Area is fun for kids who love to explore all wildlife, and the Exploration Room brings science to life, complete with bubbles, magnets and more!

A day of fun and learning is waiting at Explore & More Children's Museum, so we better get started!
