Fun With The Fam

Aha! Museum

A friend and fellow mommy in the moms group I’m in introduced me to a fun little place called Aha! Museum when she suggested we all take an outing to go play with our kids. It’s one of the perfect play-places during the cold and rainy season to get out and get some energy spent all while being educated!

Aha! Museum is a 4000 square foot adventure space featuring more than 25 exhibits and activities for children ages 0-7 (and older). Children can learn as they engage in their most important “work” of play.

Messy Art Mondays are always fun! But there is also Let’s Get Messy Tuesday, Story Time Thursday, Fun Art Friday and Science Saturday. Along with your $6/person admission to the museum on any day, your child can participate in any of these. Children 6 months and younger are free. See their calendar for details! They are open year round but have been one of our favorite locations during the cooler months for sure.

We always have such a blast going and playing with all of their educational and creative exhibits:

  • Water table (for babies)
  • Water table (bigger kids)
  • Train table
  • Laser harp
  • Pretend and play Veterinarian
  • Pretend and play market
  • Pretend and play Pizza shop
  • Fire engine
  • Ball mountain
  • Fishing boat
  • Lego/duplo table
  • Pretend and play bank
  • Theatre & costumes
  • Build a house
  • Plop zone
  • Garden zone
  • Healthy choices
  • Moon sand
  • Honeycomb
  • Art station

I also love that they promote breast feeding by having a nursing station set off in the corner with a nice rocking chair, pillows and privacy divider. This was much appreciated when I had my babies in tow when we would go play.

They do not allow any wifi access for good reason – to promote that adults supervise their children and to encourage they engage in imagination and play as well.

You can connect with them on their Facebook page. Or you can follow them on twitter @AHAChildren.
