Kids play more. Adults do, too. We thrive as a happier, healthier and more innovative community through the radiant power of play.
This is our first major renovation since we opened our downtown St. Paul museum in 1995. Children and adults alike will delight in our 10 new exhibits and enjoy a variety of new amenities.
A glass addition along West Seventh Street will house The Scramble, a four-story climbing adventure. Elsewhere in the new museum, visitors will delight in an updated pretend town, get creative in two maker workshops and engineer their own fun in an air-and-water exhibit.
Families also will enjoy a bigger toddler gallery and step out into a revamped rooftop and backyard. Kids will craft their own adventures in a ninja-training course and a carpet skate park.
This will be play like it’s meant to be. Natural. Joyous. Genuine. Children will explore, experiment, try new things, test their limits, adapt and grow.
Each exhibit will help children develop the life skills they need to succeed throughout life — how to think creatively, make plans, analyze problems, tackle challenges, speak and listen, work as part of a team and more.
