What’s a Children’s Museum

A children’s museum is a place where kids can be kids. It’s a safe place to explore their world. The name “Exploratorium” reflects this purpose. Rather than a museum where we carefully preserve the old, children’s museums allow kids to:

  • Play as grown ups in environments just their size.

  • Create with a variety of materials from giant blue blocks to paint and clay.

  • Experiment with water or electricity.

  • Use their imaginations in limitless ways.

You can experience how many other Minnesota cities have accomplished this in St. PaulDuluthRochesterMankatoHutchinson and Grand Rapids. We look forward to adding St. Cloud to this list!
