Once again, our trip to ACM was extremely fun and educational. Both of our children were delighted by the many different creative exhibits on display this month. We can't wait to see the next set of exhibits. Thank you ACM and all of the sponsors for enriching our children's minds in such a fun and creative way!

My 4 year old son, 3 year-old granddaughter and 16 mo-old grandson loved, loved, loved the Austin Children's Museum. My only reservation would be the space issue but I understand there are plans to relocate to a larger facility. I would definitely be inclined to visit more often provided there was more space for children to enjoy the museum.

From Our Editors

The tale of the Austin Children's Museum begins in 1983, when a band of parents and teachers started setting up educational exhibits and children's activities throughout the city. This “museum without walls” stretched into schools, parks, and malls, delighting children and families with a sense of whimsy and a place where play was rewarded. In the years that followed, the museum shed its nomadic beginnings and found a permanent home inside the pleasant green walls of the Dell Discovery Center. Firmly rooted, its exhibits have entertained and enlightened more than 800,000 youngsters and their parents while earning praise from the writers of Little Austinite.

Today, the sprawling 12,500-square-foot facility is a kaleidoscope of color and lights, where whippersnappers play with giant building blocks, cobble recycled materials into crafts, and marvel at golf balls as they soar through loops and shoots. Others explore the miniature Global City, where they take on roles such as veterinarians in the pet clinic, cooks in the diner, or stray raccoons hiding in the grocery store.

Throughout the week, a team of educators leads Discovery Time, guiding lads and lasses through kid-friendly science experiments that launch paper helicopters and make slime. The museum also hosts Storytime, where grownups read playful stories aloud to encourage creativity and instill a love of literature in young readers.
