Museums don't always have to be look but don't touch. In fact, the Santa Fe Children's Museum is ALL about touching! It's about having fun, being curious, experimenting, and all the while having fun. Sounds pretty cool? That's because it is!
The Santa Fe Children's Museum is a place where families can learn and play together, with a diverse range of interactive exhibits covering basic scientific principles, plus children's educational programming.
In fact, some of the museums favorite things include LEGO, and mud pies, and dinosaurs, and laughing, and robots, and block-stacking, and snakes, and stickers....shall we go on?
Each of the museums exhibits were designed to teach the children something exciting, and allow them to develop in all areas. The exhibits will make them think, make them experiment, make them curious....
In addition to the indoor exhibits, the museum has a fun outdoor garden that is worth exploring too.
