Bring the Play Home: Pretend Play
Here are great ideas for recreating the powerful play that happens in our exhibits into your own home.
Opening Aug. 1: Planning Your Visit
While we’re still the same fun place to let your imagination run wild, some experiences will be different and we’ve added additional safety protocols.
Minnesota Children’s Museum to Reopen Aug. 1
We’re planning to reopen on Saturday, Aug. 1. We are excited to welcome kids and families back to the museum.
Mourning and Making Meaningful Change
Black lives matter. They mattered yesterday. They matter today. They will matter tomorrow. Minnesota Children’s Museum and the people who make up our organization mourn the killing of George Floyd.
Play Helps Reduce Stress
You may be wondering if your kids are stressed or how this will affect them. To get expert advice on this topic, we reached out to Megan Gunnar, a Regents Professor and Distinguished McKnight University Professor of Child Development at the University of Minnesota. She’s also the chair of the museum’s Research Advisory Council.
Resources for Playful Learning at Home
Minnesota Children’s Museum is closed for now, but we are still committed to helping kids and families grow and learn through play.
We know this is a challenging time.
