One of the nation’s top children’s museums, the Creative Discovery Museum inspires children’s passion for learning through play. Whether creating a clay sculpture in the Artists' Studio, zooming a message through a pneumatic tube in Inventors' Clubhouse, digging for dinosaur bones in Excavation Station, or creating an ensemble cast of characters in the Back Alley Theatre, this museum is full of hands-on family fun. Children 4 years and younger can spend time exploring the infant garden of the Little Yellow House, while kids of all ages will enjoy RiverPlay's 2-1/2 story high climbing structure. Riverplay also offers an interactive watercourse to sail boats, learn about locks and dams, and shoot jets of water to make whirligigs spin!
