Five Best NYC Museum Exhibits for Kids
Kids have the attention span of, well, kids. When taking the little ones to a museum it is possible to avoid the dreaded “I’m bored” and “Can we go yet?” Here are five museum exhibits in New York to visit that will keep your kids entertained and have them instead asking you, “When can we go back?”
Touch Tunnel at the Liberty Science Center
The touch tunnel at the Liberty Science Center gives kids and adults alike an idea of what it’s like to be blind. Heading into a mysterious, pitch black, crawl-through maze make you realize how much we rely on our sight to navigate through everyday life. Don’t be surprised if your kids get right back in line to do it again. (Note: Touch tunnel is for kids 7+)
Discovery Room at the American Museum of Natural History
The Discovery Room was designed for kids ages 5-12 and gives kids a hand-on, behind the scenes look at science. Discovery Room allows kids to hunt for animals in a two-story replica of an African baobab tree filled with birds, insects, reptiles and small mammals. Kids can also create their own collection of minerals, skulls or arthropods from a cabinet filled with a variety of objects.
