What is there to do?

Kids, we're off to a museum created JUST for you on our next family day out!

Yes that's right. Explore & More Children's Museum can be found in a 1860s vintage house, and is filled with exhibits that you can touch, play with, create with, and use those imaginations with! 

Designed for 3 to 8 year olds, the museum offer fun and developmentally appropriate activities to entertain, teach and inspire those little inquisitive minds and bodies. 

This children's museum was created by former pre-school teachers, so you know they have the best interests of the children in mind! They have created 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.

Kids can play in a Civil War era house and a general store, and feel what it would have been like to lire in the 19th century. Creative kids can create an original work of art in the Art Room, with feathers, pipe cleaners, glue, glitter and everything they need for that masterpiece!

Future engineers can get to work in a "hard hat" area in the construction zone, with pulleys, gears, and even see how far a whisper can travel, or nature lovers will fin the Nature Area fascinating with hermit crabs, frogs, and other small and adorable creatures. 

A museum JUST for kids, where hands-on fun in encouraged!
