If you haven’t made a trip to Minnesota Children’s Museum yet, you’ll want to get here before our special summer experiences are gone.
This summer, kids are experimenting, taking risks, problem solving and more as they step into the role of illustrator, storyteller and inventor in the Rube GoldbergTM: The World of Hilarious Invention! exhibit.
Minnesota Children’s Museum and the Playful Learning Lab at the University of St. Thomas are joining forces to make play even more powerful for Minnesota families.
This summer, in addition to a plethora of fun-filled permanent exhibits, we have a great lineup of special experiences and events that shine a spotlight on creative and critical thinking — important skills that help kids go far in school and life.
Summer camps, sports practices, music lessons and maybe a road trip or two. Is your family’s summer schedule getting crowded? It’s a good time to remember to carve out time for good old-fashioned play – getting dirty, goofing off and making up your own rules.
Visitors will explore the six types of simple machines, discover how they function and build their own machines using a variety of materials and tools in this new experience.
