We brought 4 kids(ages from 3-6) and they loved it. There were lots of activities for them to enjoy. I would recommend bringing your kids there at least once to experience it. We'll definitely be back.

Bring a change of clothes after your child discovers the water tables he/she will be soaked.

fun, creative place! just wish it was a little less crowded and cheaper so we could go more often. $10/person plus garage parking adds up :(

This place can get extremely busy...ensure to call the hotline to see how busy they are- it's updated frequently, so it's pretty accurate.

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. Maker Saturdays are held every Saturday from 2 to 4:30 p.m. where builders aged 4-7 can invent, design, and create things like monster-bots, recycled art sculptures, cardboard cities, pump rockets, and Rube Goldberg mousetraps; while Story Time offers free stories every day of the week. 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.
