$12 for Four Children's-Museum Visits ($24 Value)
Admission grants children and their adult supervisors access to six experience zones: an art studio, a theater stage, a produce-harvesting area, a forest-exploration area, a reading castle, and a creative construction room. Kids can also frolic in an outdoor organic garden that opens for seasonal exploration.
A giant tree spreads its limbs across a softly lit room as soothing forest sounds play. On a child-size stage, kids manipulate controls to flick theater lights on and off. In an art studio stocked with supplies, budding artists make creative messes. This is all taking place in Wonder Works' 6,400-square-foot space. Children aged 8 and younger explore six hands-on exhibits that help them express their creativity and develop mental and social skills. Wonder Works is able to cater to children with special needs.
The children's museum also hosts school field trips, and a variety of special activities and events including a children's music concert series, African American History Month, and the paleontology-centric Dino Works. In addition, an outdoor organic garden onsite gives kids an opportunity to marvel in the great outdoors without having to pay tolls to riddle-spouting trolls.

“We took our 11 month old grandson to Wonder Works and it was perfect for him. We will definitely go back. There were many children having so much fun in all of the various rooms. It looks like it would be great for crawlers through 6 year olds.”
“Great spot for kids. My 2 year old loves it!”
