What is there to do?

Kids, we know you love days out where you can play, create, experiment and just have a great time. Parents, we KNOW you love days out where the children and learn and develop. So why not visit a place where you can do both!

The Providence Children's Museum is exactly that! For kids aged 1 to 11, the museum is filled with fun, interactive, creative and hands-on exhibits and programs which are designed to develop the minds and bodies of those little ones, and let them have fun doing it!

The exhibits at the Providence Children's Museum are all based around history, culture, the arts and science. Want to make a SPLASH! Head on over to Water Way, where those future scientists can playfully explore mist, ice, and the whirling, swirling ways of water. They can send objects through vortexes, and even "paint" watery designs!

Discovery Studio is a great place to explore art and science with their changing schedule of super fun and creative activities. One day you might be creating art with recycled materials, and even tackle more creative construction challenges!

They have a different theme each week! 

The Children's Garden is filled with nature, including native plants, and is a great place for fun outdoor play on those lovely sunny days. Kids can wriggle through a challenging two-story high climbing maze, and they can even time travel back to meet the people who immigrated to Rhode Island from all around the world!

With tree houses, air tubes, a bear cave and all things marionette, you certainly have your hands full of fun at Providence Children's Museum!
