A box of crayons can unlock a child's imagination, just as a box of keys can unlock a bunch of boxes you were never meant to open. Open your offspring’s mind with this Groupon.
$12 for Two Admissions to The Crayola Experience ($24 Value)
Three floors of hands-on exhibits encourage creativity as visitors create projects, explore Crayola's history, and watch crayon- and marker-making demonstrations. The Crayola Color Crew estimates that a typical visit takes about three hours—though people can take as little or much time as they like—and they recommend visitors arrive shortly after the doors open at 9:30 a.m. each day if they want to avoid crowds. Infants younger than 24 months are admitted for free.
The Crayola Experience
The Crayola Experience packs hands-on fun into more than a dozen exhibits spread over three floors. Visitors can step into a photo booth that creates a coloring page featuring themselves, doodle in the dark on giant glow boards, and paint with melted wax—or head to the Crayola Chronology exhibit to learn more about the company's colorful past. The Crayola Color Crew keeps the world's largest crayon caddy stocked with more than 100 Crayola crayon colors with which kids can draw pictures of their family or favorite TV family. Live manufacturing demonstrations allow visitors to watch crayons and markers being birthed before their eyes.
Character appearances, pizza, and Crayola crafts make birthday parties at The Crayola Experience memorable. The Crayola Store houses the world's largest crayon, which weighs in at 1,500 pounds and was forged from 123,000 blue crayons—the same number Picasso went through during his Blue Period.
