Exhibits

The Children’s Museum is developmentally appropriate for children age 7 and under, however we find that many older children enjoy the museum when accompanying younger visitors. Additionally, we have programs designed to include older children. Please feel free to call us if you have questions about the nature of our exhibits or programs.

Congress Park

Climb into our tree house and find the habitats of various local animals, surround yourself in a life sized bubble, or create music of your own in our child sized replica of Congress Park.
