Lower Level

Welcome, little explorers!

Dive into a world on your scale! Roam, play, and discover together on an adventure filled with an indoor nature hike, exploring a pint-sized farmer’s market, splashing at the water play table, and crawling up, over, and through just about everything in sight. The Children’s Museum is for children ages 5 and under with their adult companions.

Don't Miss!
