What is there to do?

Habitot Children's Museum is ALL about play for those younger tots in the family. Here, kids can immerse themselves in a series of engaging physical, role-play, imagination and learning settings ideal for those aged 1 to 5 years.

All of the exhibits and activities throughout the museum are all designed to help parents and caregivers raise curious, creative, and confident children. Sounds like fun to us!

There are nine unique exhibits and themed play areas that kids can develop those integral skills, explore, discover, create and learn all at their own pace and learning ability.

Kids study the marvels of water in the Waterworks exhibit, complete with pumping station, river ramp and water table offering endless possibilities for kids to discover this magical liquid.

For those youngest in the museum, the Infant-Toddler Garden is geared towards those under 20 months, with murals, soft carpets, foam block climbing and plenty of early learning fun.

There are fruit and vegetables waiting to be purchased for that dining table or restaurant in the Little Town Grocery and Cafe, where kids can shop just like mom and dad, or create their own menu!

Children's books are available in the reading tent, or the exploration can move underground with the Wiggle Wall, where a worm's eye view is ready to be experienced!

From wind tunnels, fun face painting, trains galore and even changing featured exhibits that will keep you on your toes, the Habitot Children's Museum is ready for those playful and curious tots who love to explore and learn!
