Things to Do, Travel Tips — By jessicapolizzotti on November 12, 2011 at 2:50 pm


Boston has many museum options, but some cater to kids better than others. Three of the most exciting inner-city museums allow kids to be kids and explore with few limitations. You will probably be surprised by how much fun you have.

Boston Children’s Museum- Many amazing adventures await at the Children’s Museum; kids can climb the centrally located maze, blow big bubbles in the dedicated bubble room, build something solid in the construction zone, learn about culture, and even countdown to kindergarten in the make-shift classroom. The Boston Children’s Museum also features the perfect place for the under 3 crowd, Playspace. This room comes complete with crawling structures, small-scale slides, cars to drive and even daily crafts. There is no doubt that kids will have fun here, but adults will also enjoy returning to childhood at the Boston Children’s Museum.

Museum of Science -Explore each and every last crook of the Museum of Science and encounter excitement from our past, present and even a glimpse into our future. Kids are amazed by the lightning show and love the freedom to move that this large space allows. Enjoy a show in the Planetarium or take a trip around the world in the Omni theater. Exhibits change often, making the Museum of Science a must see on each and every visit.

New England Aquarium- The New England Aquarium allows guests to see beneath the ocean’s surface with the Giant Ocean Tank that circles the center of this structure. The Aquarium’s Edge of the Sea tidepool let’s little ones plunge right in where they can pet a sea star, make the acquaintance of a lobster, or cradle a hermit crab. Entertaining and informative presentations happen at the Aquarium each day.
