Stepping Stones Museum for Children encourages learning through play, which is perfect, because kids love to play, and parents love kids to learn - it couldn't be more perfect!
The mission of the Stepping Stones Museum for Children is to enrich the education of kids under 10 years, and to really give them a greater understanding of the world. The museum aims to create an environment for them that can inspire lifelong learning in them, and supports parents in giving kids that education.
Within the museum there is a whole host of exhibits which are designed with education in mind. These allow kids to really get stuck into them - to touch, play, experiment, and get creative. After all, who wants a museum filled with "no touching" signs!

All of the exhibits are categorized by age too, so you can ensure you are taking your kids to the ones perfect for them.
Kids can learn all about the science of energy at the Energy Lab, where they can invent and imagine. They can visit exhibits inspired by nursery rhymes, or manipulate the wheel, lever and pulley to produce sound and motion!
They can build with different materials, learn between simple and complex machinery, or even become immersed in the windy and wet environments!
There are plenty of options for those youngest tots at the museum, with Tot Town allowing babies to explore the world, and feel the elements in the Energy Lab!
