Greeted by a three-story climbing structure, The Boston Children's Museum feels more like a playground than museum. Here, exploration and play are the keys to engaging families with science, culture and art. Permanent exhibits and special shows demonstrate everything from how bubbles work to little race cars. Don't miss The Gallery where they put on two-month-long exhibits from local artists—some unusual, some inspiring and some just beautiful. Then take that inspiration and create a meaningful souvenir together in the art studio!
