2/19/16: Boston Children's Museum Fun for All Ages

My kids have loved the Children's Museum in Boston for years.  It is so much fun for kids of all ages.  Plus there are always new exhibits and fun areas to explore.  Kids get to learn cool concepts in a fun environment.  If you have never been I highly suggest you go.
This climbing structure has always been a favorite of my kids.  I remember when they were little and could not climb it all the way.
 Now they climb up and down all the way with no issues.
There are three floors of varying areas of play.  We headed to the bubble area right after the kids climbed.  They made some pretty cool large bubbles.
 There are also aprons in here for younger kids so they don't get bubbles all over them.
Next we went in to the area with golf balls to play with and learn different concepts in physics.  I love watching the kids experiment together.  Lauren was running around picking up the golf balls to bring to Evan.
Then we headed up to the 2nd floor.  We found an area to build forts in and the kids couldn't wait to get building.
We spent a long time here.  The kids made forts and hid in them and made a sign for their fort.  They had supplies for them including tarp, tape, boxes, blankets and tables.
 We then headed in to the water play area.  Again it was fun to see cause and effect.
This is Peep's World.  Here is a picture from a previous visit.
There is a welcome to Kindergarten area.  Here is a picture from another visit where the kids were listening to this book.
I think Evan's favorite area is the one with the trucks.  We used to spend hours there.  This visit we were with three girls so they were not as interested but Evan still spent some time there.
Love these pictures from past visits.
There is also an area where kids can build with real tools.
There is also an area for little kids 3 and under.  Here are some pictures when the kids played there.
They also do shows that you can pick up free tickets for in the lobby area.  Here is Evan in one of the shows years ago.  This is on the Kid Stage area on the 1st floor.
Look at how cute Lauren was playing there.
There is always a new exhibit in one of the areas.  The exhibit right now is Native Voices.
They always get put to work in the store.
 Kid Power!
It is in a lovely area in Boston with convenient parking.
What a fun museum!  The kids had a blast.
