Bowers Kidseum

I had the opportunity to take my kiddos to the Bowers Kidseum a couple of weeks ago and we had a fantastic time!!My kiddos loved it from the very start. The entrance greets you with a cute little drawbridge and I literally had to tear them away to leave and discover the rest of the museum.

It’s a smaller museum and perfect for the little ones. The museum is designed for kids 1-10 to learn and enjoy the world around them. The first stop on our visit was the tribal instrument area. My kids loved playing with different types of instruments from around the world. They loved playing with all of the different types of drums and other musical instruments.

Once they had their fill of music- We headed over to the ethnic masks section. The kids loved trying on all of the different masks and took turns trying to scare me. They also loved the small puppet theater where they tried putting on a show with their masks.

One of the biggest hits of our little excursion was the international dress up station. The kiddos loved trying on clothes from different parts of the world and sitting down for a tea party. There is a small section with a table, chair and play foods adjacent to the dress up area. Your kids will love it.

We finished our visit by making a kite in the craft area. It was a perfect room set up with all the materials needed to make a craft and a small area to entertain toddlers/infants. It was perfect because after they finished their kites- there was a clean up area- where we were able to wash up and get ready to head home.

We had a fantastic time and I know your family will too!!
The museum offers a free admission day on the First Sunday of the month- thanks to a generous sponsorship from Target. For additional information click here.
