Ten Days of Play 2019

Kids will play, create, improvise, and learn when Ten Days of Play returns for its seventh year. This innovative opportunity for child-directed play is available daily from 11 am to 3 pm and Sunday noon to 3 pm.

 

The Ten Days of Play festival will take place throughout the Museum. The Crane Room will be filled with an exciting assortment of modular building toys: kids will enjoy a generous LEGO® station, explore color and gravity at the Tegu magnetic block station, stack structures with Bilderhoos, and innovate with the big blue blocks of the Imagination Playground. Ten Days of Play will also feature interactive activities for early learners, daily aquarium programs, and the popular Tinker Lab.

Included with regular Museum admission.
