Children are little sponges that soak up information and knowledge. Fill them up with a curiosity in science, technology, nature, and how cool things work in general with these 5 children’s museums that will blow their minds and entertain them for hours (that means hours of freedom for you).
1. McWane Science Center, Birmingham, Alabama
McWane Science Center has welcomed millions of visitors to learn about all things STEM from exciting hands-on experiences. Permanent exhibits include Itty Bitty Magic City (a play area perfect for kindergarteners and younger tots), Alabama Dinosaurs (featuring fossils discovered in the state) and NatureScope (discover birds and creepy crawly things).
2. The Fairbanks Children’s Museum
The Fairbanks Children’s Museum is all about play-based learning, and kids have a blast with all the awesome hands-on experiences and programs. You can practice a little butterfly yoga, mingle with other parents and tots during special meetups and scale a rock wall, just to name a few.
