This museum is perfect for: Kids who want to have fun, and parents who love it when fun also includes a little learning, imagination and active play. Most of the exhibits in the museum are perfect for kids in the 4 to 9 age range, but there are also dedicated spaces for toddlers age 2 and under.
The Amazeum recently added a new space for early learners six and younger. Sponsored by Pampers, Studio Grow houses experiences designed specifically for young learners, caregivers and families.
Studio Grow is designed to support caregivers and children as they actively grow, develop and move through stages of physical, social and cognitive development. Designed to be flexible and meet the diverse needs of young children and their families, Studio Grow is a place where kids playfully explore science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) through open-ended, child-driven investigations. Studio Grow will also be home to expanded Early Learner Programming at the Amazeum.
What kids love about the Amazeum: One of the most exciting exhibits is called Nature Valley Water Amazements, and kids LOVE this area of the museum. (Expect to see water tornadoes and lots of other cool things.) It’s pretty common for kids to get wet in this area, so it’s a good idea to bring a change of clothes, just in case.
What you might not know about it:
The Amazeum offers an opportunity called “Priceless Nights,” which means that — instead of paying regular admission prices — families are encouraged to simply pay as they wish. Priceless Nights happen on designated Wednesdays from 4 to 7:30 p.m.
They also host BIRTHDAY PARTIES, woo-hoo! Talk about a magical event. So much fun for everyone!
Testimonial from local moms:
I have 3 boys, ages 8, 5, and 2, and the Amazeum makes all three of them happy! We enjoy everything there is to offer, but the temporary exhibits always bring fresh excitement to our visits. I highly recommend buying a family pass. It’s roughly the price of 2 visits, and we take advantage of the “passport program”, which allows us free admission into other amazing museums! Well worth it! ~ Jenny
We had the best 4th Birthday party at the Amazeum! Highly recommend having a birthday party or just a fun day or the kids!! The staff was so sweet and so helpful!! ~ Brittney
Congrats to the staff at the Amazeum!
