"The color of springtime is in the flowers, the color of winter is in the imagination."


There are lots of ways to have fun at the Children’s Museum at Holyoke!


Beginning as early as 6 months, babies enjoy our Tot Lot, which is a quiet, carpeted and matted play area. Once the walking begins everything in the Museum is fun and curious for them to enjoy.

Little ones immediately gravitate to the Water Table, Ambulance and Public Safety Complex. Everything is fun to them and open to explore. How fun is it for them to play in our grocery store, then cook in the kitchen and serve the adults they are with? It never gets old.

Children almost always want to start out on the Curvy Climber. Throughout the Museum are several other activities which older children might spend more time with. These could include, the Legos Table, The Magna Tile Table, Maxi Rollways and the Animation Station.

We also have a state-of-the-art World of Motion room which stimulates the curious minds of children and adults. This room is STEM-based and encourages learning and play.

Whatever the age, we suggest that as long as your Children are still enjoying their visits to the Museum, age is irrelevant.

At the Children’s Museum, exhibits are designed by education professionals (all former kids themselves) and are hands-on. Parental or Adult interaction is strongly encouraged as kid play, discover and learn with you.

The staff at the Museum work very hard to keep the exhibits fresh, clean and neat.  We rely on our guests, children and the adults that accompany them to help us maintain the exhibits by picking up after your children enjoy a particular area. This truly will help us to maintain our reasonable price structure so that everyone can enjoy this treasure.
