What is there to do?

If you visit the McKenna Childrens Museum we're afraid you will have to follow the one golden rule....Make sure you PLAY with everything!

The museum is not like others you may have gone to in the past, with "Do Not Touch" and "Stay Off" signs everywhere.  Here, them museum is designed for you!

There are a host of exhibits covering topics such as space, the great outdoors, and even towns and cities.

Ever wanted to be an astronaut and head out into the unknown?  Your imagination will run wild here as you put on your very own space suit, and make you way through the launch pad and onto the spaceship.  Do you think you can successfully complete the mission?

Perhaps you want to take a stroll about town?  Maybe drive the ambulance to someone who needs help, or visit the local bank and chat to the teller - even visit your local store and pick up some products?

Love camping?  Come on then! Sit around the campfire with your horses enjoying the sounds of nature...use your imagination to hear the crickets, and the waves of the river. 

Once you have finished inside you can head outside to the colorful playground, complete with an entertaining water table, and very unique climber!  You can even show off your musical skills on their music making activities. 

Just make sure you take your creativity and imagination along with you!

I’m Hungry!

Yum! Any rumbling tummies can head to the cafe for tasty (and kid friendly!) treats. The cafe is open weekdays 11am - 2pm. Unfortunately no outside food or drink is allowed in the museum exhibit areas. There are, however lunch tables and picnic tables in the cafe if you want to bring your own food. - Fun things to do with kids and best places to visit in the US
