The museum is in a basement with little to no cell service. I was unable to pull up my voucher on my mobile, but the staff was able to check me in through their computer. All the staff was friendly and helpful. The museum was very small, but gave my 3 kids (all 5 and under) a solid 2 hours of play before they were bored.

Just a blast! My kids love this place. Though it's geared towards kids 3/4 or under, my 6 year still adores it.

Bring a change of clothes. The water tables can get really messy. :)

Go on a nice, sunny day and, if possible, go on a weekday - the smaller crowds made a dramatic difference in my daughter's level of enjoyment.

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.
