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.
Minnesota Children’s Museum will open Rube GoldbergTM: The Hilarious World of Innovation Exhibit! on Saturday, May 25. This hands-on exhibit celebrates the Pulitzer Prize winning humorist and inventor, and introduces visitors to the creative processes behind his iconic contraptions.
Parents who want their children to grow up healthy should create time and space for their kids to play, the World Health Organization states.
Minnesota Children’s Museum has won recognition as a finalist for the 2019 National Medal for Museum and Library Service. The National Medal is the nation’s highest honor given to museums and libraries for service to their communities.
