Boca Raton Children’s Museum Review

This is such a fun place, it is really small, but the kids have a wonderful time there.  If you are expecting fancy, flashy technology, then this is not the place for you!  The Children’s Museum itself is located in “Singing Pines” house.  It was built about 1912 and is considered one of the oldest unaltered buildings in Boca Raton.  It is filled with fun, music, and art set up in such a way as to inspire a child’s (and their parents) imagination with creative play in a simple and beautiful way.

Each room in the house has a fun educational theme.  Kids can go to The Bank and pretend to be a bank teller with pretend money that can be placed into a vault.  The Grocery Store is where they can use a mini grocery cart and pick what they want to buy from shelves full of healthy food choices, or they can even pretend to be the check-out clerk.  Kids and adults can watch butterfly’s out the window with binoculars, dress up in traditional costumes from around the world, or be creative with magnetic building blocks.  Oh, and there is a sailing ship on the front lawn that seems to call to every child’s wildest imagination!  Kids can climb aboard set their imaginations free.

The museum offers children the chance to use their imagine, make noise and simply be children.  Annual Memberships are available and they also do birthday parties.
Boca Raton Children’s Museum is Participating in BAMM (Broward Museum and Attraction Month).
