Stepping Stones Museum for Children knows what makes kids tick, which is why the museum, for infants on up, is such a hit. At the Energy Lab, kids can experience a mini wind tunnel or use waterfalls and water wheels to pump and push water to perform activities. In Build It, they can pretend to put down carpeting or wallpaper or haul building materials. In Express Yourself, art, music and games help them explore their emotions. And in Tot Town, infants through toddlers enjoy activity mats, puzzles and a play kitchen. Time for a nutritious but delicious snack? There’s lots to choose from at the Healthyville Cafe. Shared moments of discovery and playful explorations happen every day at this engaging museum.
