What is there to do?

The Little Buckeye Children’s Museum is ALL about offering kids self-directed play through creative, open-ended learning environments that engage kids and adults, spark imagination, and promote discovery.

That sounds pretty fun to us!

Throughout the children's museum, you'll find a number of exhibits that each teach kids something different, allowing them to develop in their own way. Kids can also play at their own pace, so kids of all learning abilities are welcome too!

The museum includes a stage for performances. Dozens of dress-up costumes are available, along with musical instruments and props for make believe. Fun!

Also within the museum are exhibits where kids can role-play and be like mom and dad for the day! They might want to visit the bank, do some shopping at the local market, or even transform themselves into a veterinarian and look after some injured animals.

Make sure you also check out Water Table, The Baby Doctor, and the Big Blue Blocks!
