THis is best for children between 2-3 yrs old. My grandson is 3 and a half and he was bordering on being too old for the environment. But the younger kids there were having a great time and the parents were behaving and letting them play without interfering too much.

From Our Editors

A group of teachers and parents founded Habitot Children's Museum in 1998 with one specific mission in mind: to foster children up to 6 years old by encouraging their creativity and natural curiosity. Today, the 4,000-square-foot museum backs up this mission with research?gleaned from studies by scientists, psychologists, and educators?positing that healthy play spurs social skills, creative thinking, and problem solving, laying the foundation for kids to succeed later in life and imprison boogeymen in their booby-trapped closet tomorrow.

At Habitot, kids find such opportunities at small-scale exhibits and themed play areas throughout the museum. Aspiring doctors, nurses, and EMT's get a chance to inspect x-rays, wrap bandages, and drive the ambulance in the Medical Center. Young explorers press buttons, turn dials, and issue commands for pretend space launches inside a 13-foot model rocket ship or navigate a vertical floor-to-ceiling maze designed to mimic worm tunnels. At the waterworks table and pumping station, young engineers manipulate water using buckets, funnels, waterwheels, and pitchers to help them understand H2O?s unique properties, such as how it keeps boats afloat on the arms of a thousand mermen. (At different times throughout the year, the staff transforms this area with a different theme; at times it?s been a car wash, a marine-science lab, or the racing grounds for a rubber-ducky regatta.) Visitors can tap into their inner Van Goghs at the art studio, where they play with soft clays and go nuts on a paintable wall. Habitot also hosts year-round children's camps with themes such as beaches, transportation, space, castles, and science. Two free activities offered include the Hip Stix dance program on the 1st Saturday of the month, as well as Wiggly Wednesdays, a free weekly singalong class.
