Enjoy hands-on activities that encourage imagination and creativity in children.
South Dakota's Children's Museum is an amazing place for all ages to learn through hands-on play. The museum is housed in a 1936 school building, with plenty of room for over 5,000 interactive learning items. There are multiple themed areas with activities that enhance learning. The grocery store has food, shopping carts, and registers. Take a look at the farm to see how the food gets to the grocery store. Go into the garage to play mechanic by changing a tire or shoot scarves through long, twisting air vents allowing visitors to learn gross motor skills and just have fun.
The large water table with accessories is another fun area, or build something out of the very large Lincoln Logs. The Light Bright wall is fascinating due to its size and provides a space for visitors to write their names or use the light tubes to create shapes. If you've worked up an appetite, stop by the Café for a bite to eat. The admission price is good for the entire day. There is so much learning potential at the Children's Museum. They can learn about math, science, history, geography, spelling, and so much more.
