New KidsTown Grand Opening Weekend!

October 22, 2016 @ 10:00 am - October 23, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

The long-awaited Grand Opening Weekend of New KidsTown is almost here!

Opening on October 22 and 23 to the general public, New KidsTown is taking over the second floor! That’s right, the family-favorite exhibit designed for infant to seven-year-old children to enjoy is growing, and at 11,000 square feet, it will be nearly three times the size of the current exhibit on Level 1! It will feature seven dynamic zones with skill-based activities that encourage children to invent and create, build and test, spark their innate curiosity, make exciting discoveries and empower them to author their own experience – which is an elaborate way of saying we let them PLAY TO LEARN!

We’re really excited to celebrate and want to encourage everyone to join in on the funny by wearing their wackiest outfits! Think silly socks, tutus, capes, mismatched pieces and more!
