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!

Where Boston Goes to Play
Boston Children's Museum is 100! Located on Congress Street in the Fort Point neighborhood of the city, the museum shouldn't be missed if you are visiting the city with children.
Housed in a converted warehouse, the museum has more than 15 exhibits, including the Japanese House, a gift from Boston's sister city: Kyoto, Japan.
So, if, like Peter Pan, you never want to grow up, then remember there is always a place where you can be a kid again in Boston.
