The recently renovated Minnesota Children's Museum now has even more family-friendly features for you to explore. Located in Minneapolis' twin city, St. Paul, the museum is a wonderland for children of all ages! The exhibits are spread out over three floors with an interactive layout that encourages hands-on learning and exploration.
The Minnesota Children's Museum takes learning out of the classroom and puts it in the hands of its tiny visitors. There are a plethora of experiences to have, and you can certainly enjoy an entire day exploring it all. One exhibit is a "town" for kids to spend the day in. They'll spend time exploring a pint-sized post office and fire station. They'll work part-time at a food stand taking orders and cooking food. Every part of the pretend town is designed to place children in a community setting.
There's an area with a giant spiral slide and even a maze made of lasers for children to navigate through to develop agility and flexibility. The museum has a space for even the tiniest of explorers. Take the kids to the Sprouts exhibit to engage children three years and under in sensory play.
If the weather permits, children can play outdoors in the "Backyard" replete with animal sculptures, a kid-sized nest, and a garden.
There's much more to see and do at the Minnesota Children's Museum and adults can even get in on the fun. Whether you recently moved to the Twin Cities, or you're just visiting, this museum is a must! The Minnesota Children's Museum is open Tuesday–Thursday from 9 AM to 4 PM; Friday–Saturday from 9 AM to 8 PM, and Sunday from 9 AM to 5 PM. Museum members get in free and general admission is $12.95 per person (prices subject to change). Children under one get in free, and family memberships are available as well. The museum is closed on Monday.
