Where can you learn about science, imagine dinosaurs in space, and explore ways to strengthen our communities together? Boston Children’s Museum in the Seaport. Everyone can learn something new and unleash their inner kiddo across the three-story museum with rotating exhibitions, educational programs + an Art and STEAM Lab. This hands-on, interactive space is perfect for any day, and Bostonians of all ages.
What we tried:
The whole family can explore and enjoy the Museum’s latest exhibition, “You, Me, We.” Now open, this colorful celebration of the diversity in our communities shines a light on the unique characters in every family and community. From the “Grab a Plate” area, where local chefs, families, and produce are the stars, to the self-portrait area, where everyone is invited to create a masterpiece, this safe space helps broach topics about the world around us.
What not to miss:
As soon as you walk in, there is a free climb space and an interactive bubble exhibit, which are great for the hands-on kiddos. If you’re looking to let your imagination blast off, don’t miss the Dinos in Space exhibition. Find the dinosaur with the space pack, named Pickles, on the third floor, and enter the space dome to learn about constellations, intergalactic messages, and even dress up a dinosaur for their adventure in space.
What we’re still talking about:
Pro tip: Don’t skip the interactive DJ station inside the “You, Me, We” exhibition, featuring a variety of music + beats to mix. The bins next to the turntable have plenty of options to keep the party going, and you can add your own style with a variety of sounds to remix your favorite songs.
