Boston Children's Museum Tours

2 Reviews
Boston Children's Museum is the city’s premier destination for the education of children and the second oldest museum of its kind in the country. It boasts a wide variety of activities and hands-on exhibits for children through entertainment and fun. Many are just as entertaining for parents as they are for children.

The museum hosts nearly 20 permanent exhibits. Among them, the incredibly popular Arthur & Friends is home to characters from Marc Brown’s TV show and book series. In the Art Studio, parents work with their children to create freeform art. The Construction Zone inspires children to work with trucks and power tools to explore the world of construction. While the Japanese House is an actual house shipped from Kyoto to help foster an understanding of foreign cultures a world away.

History buffs will also appreciate the museum’s rare and substantial collection of Natural History, Dolls and Dollhouses, Americana, Native American and Japanese artifacts. While many of its more than 50,000 artifacts are safely stored away from the public, visitors are still able to view a sizable portion of the collection.
