More Information on Boston
Boston Children’s Museum Highlights
- Art Studio – A dynamic, hands-on activity space. This room is designed to encourage children to observe, explore and express ideas using a variety of creative tools.
- The Common – For games, gatherings, and getting active, the Common is the place to play. It’s all about brain-building fun here, with activities to help children develop gross motor skills.
- Japanese House – Families can explore every corner of this fully-equipped Japanese house, reconstructed in Boston by Japanese carpenters. Japanese family life, customs, ceremonies, art, architecture, and seasonal events are all highlighted in the fully functional 100-year-old house.
- Kid Power – Active bodies are powerful bodies. Use pedal power to activate the Kid Power sign, light up the interactive dance floor, climb the walls, or hop on the power pump seats.
- New Balance Foundation Climb – This incredible three-story climbing sculpture is made of flowing curved platforms, rising up through the glass lobby of Boston Children’s Museum and inviting children to scamper and scale this vertical maze. Children are both challenged and delighted as they attempt safe risk-taking and find their way through the 3D, full-body puzzle.
