Cozy nooks to take a break

Free on-site parking

Enter the Museum parking lot off of the Van Buren Rd. entrance for covered and uncovered parking options.

Accessible viewing in The Climber

If your kiddo is unsure about exploring The Climber or they have mobility limitations, they can check it out on the 3rd floor. Just take the elevator up and go left past the noodle forest.

Bring your own food and drinks

Food is available for purchase at the Cafe, and guests are welcome to bring their own food or beverages to eat in designated areas. Hot beverages are not allowed, and cold drinks should be in a plastic container with a secure, screw-top lid.

Plenty of sensory play

In the art room, noodle forest, and many more places, there are great opportunity to play, learn and explore through touch.

Hug a cactus :)
