Spend the Day With the Whole Family at the Boston Children’s Museum
Located on Children's Wharf along the Fort Point Channel, Boston Children’s Museum is the second oldest children’s museum in the world with a rich history of educating and engaging children. The museum’s exhibits and programs emphasize hands-on learning through experience, employing play as a tool to spark the creativity, curiosity, and imagination of children. Most exhibit topics focus on science, culture, environmental awareness, health and fitness, and the arts. The museum is also one of the few children's museums in the world to maintain a collection, with more than 50,000 items. Check out one of the most popular exhibits, Bubbles, for a chance to create bubbles of all different sizes while relating it to science and experimentation.
Tickets are $17 for adults and children, and infants are free. There are multiple parking options in close proximity to the museum, including several different garages and lots. The Boston Children’s Museum is open Saturday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
