Minnesota Children’s Museum Announces New Summer Experiences and Events
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.
Make Play a Priority This Summer
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.
