Boston Children’s Museum
Another great place to visit while camping around Boston, MA is definitively the Boston Children’s Museum and let your little ones go crazy around the three floors of this museum. I remember going on a trip to Boston with a friend while being in University. We had visited the Computer Museum, which is now closed, at that same place where now stand the Boston Children’s Museum.
We visited this museum twice so far and each time we had a marvelous time with our kids. The Boston Children’s Museum will allow your kids to learn through experience and hands-on engagement. The exhibits focus on science, culture, environmental awareness, health & fitness, and the arts.
My younger kids enjoyed the activities in the construction zone and Arthur & Friends while my oldest kids the highlights preferred the 3-story climbing sculpture as well as the Kid Power area where you learn how it is important to stay active. However, all four of them enjoyed the Science Playground when you can experiment with bubbles, investigate and race with a variety of balls and tracks.
The Boston Children’s Museum is one of the best children’s museums I have seen so far. To be honest, it is my favorite… I wish the one we have in town would be that good and that fun. Ours is simply different with a trip around the world.
The Boston Children’s Museum is worth visiting because it is so out of the ordinary and there is something for every kid in your family whether they are younger or older. The both times we set foot in this museum, we enjoyed being there even if the activities were more geared toward kids.
Once again, I would strongly suggest that you check with a museum near you to see if their membership will allow you to access museums around the US and Canada for free. We have such a program in the museums in town and we take advantage of the free access of museum whenever we are on the road. The membership has helped us to save quite a bit of money when it comes to admission prices for museum like the Boston Children’s Museum. When you are on the road travelling with an RV, it’s worth considering purchasing a membership at your local museum.
The Boston Children’s Museum is located on Children’s Wharf at 308 Congress Street, Boston MA 02210 and may be reached at (617) 426-6500.
Open every day from 10am to 5pm and Fridays from 10am to 9pm.
