10 New Exhibits at the Minnesota Children's Museum

June 12

I have accepted to become a Play Advocate for the Minnesota Children's Museum in Saint Paul, MN.  This post is of the newly remodeled Museum and it's 10 new exhibits!  

I have 2 children , ages 5 & 9.  Sometimes it is hard to keep them both interested in the same things.  If it is age appropriate for my 5 year old then sometime my 9 year old, Ava, is "bored".  Then there are times I bring Beckham, age 5, to things that he is not yet able to do.   The Minnesota Children's Museum is not one of those places!!!  They both had fun.  SO much fun in fact, after 3 hours neither of them wanted to go home.  SUCCESS!!!

  Here are the 10 new exhibits: 


The Scramble

Four-story vertical adventure with two climbing towers, a spiral slide and a netted catwalk suspended more than 40 feet high.  Don't forget your socks!!!
