Scientists agree that children are our future, which is why most children are sealed in time capsules with a flashlight and a stack of magazines. Give a child something he or she will really dig with today's deal at Kids Discovery Museum (KiDiMu) in Bainbridge Island. Choose from the following two museum options:
- For $10, you get four admission tickets (a $20 value).
- For $40, you get a one-year family membership (an $80 value). Family membership benefits include free admission to the museum for all immediate family members, coupons for youth museums in the Pacific Northwest, and a 10% gift shop discount.
KiDiMu opened its shiny new doors in June 2010, ushering in visitors of all ages with its exciting interactive exhibits and play areas. The modern facility boasts a towering pirate tree house where rambunctious rapscallions can prep for the inevitable day their limbs will be replaced with hooks and wooden pegs, as well as a padded Totally Tot toddler play place for younger pipsqueaks. Art imitates life in KiDiMu’s Our Town where nonmortgage paying family members can count change at the Dollars and Sense exhibit, pick up foodstuffs at the Fine Foods Grocery Store, or go for a joy ride in a real electric car. The museum’s second floor focuses on stimulating, educational demonstrations about motion in the art room and science hall. And KiDiMu’s living roof offers an outdoor respite for a sunny day’s relaxation or midnight's supervillain brooding. Workshops throughout the year highlight a range of art, music, and storytelling events, and past special guests at the museum include Bill Nye the Science Guy, Reptile Man, and Reptile Man’s nonaqueous half-brother, Kevin.
Kids Discovery Museum
Children and their families are welcome to learn together through exploration of interactive exhibits. Kids are sure to begin their adventure in the Pirate Tree House atop an authentic tree trunk, a multilevel play space showcasing the museum's leading philosophy: Imagine, Discover and Grow.
In this spirit, rather than lecturing youngsters and their families, KiDiMu, sparks their imaginations with hands-on exhibits covering science, culture and art. In Science Hall, an interactive physics exhibit illustrates the concepts of velocity and acceleration through experiments first devised by Galileo and Newton to prove the Earth revolves around a fig. Visitors to Our Town’s community can attempt cash withdrawals at a faux ATM or tour a waterfront park.
