Children’s Museum of Phoenix: Interactive, Educational Fun
July 7, 2015 | western
The Children's Museum of Phoenix has three floors of interactive, educational activities for kids of all ages. The guiding principle of this center is that learning is fun, and its mission is to engage the minds, muscles, and imaginations of kids as well as parents.
One of the most popular features is the noodle forest, which consists of hundreds of foam pool noodles hanging from the ceiling, allowing kids to hide from each other and explore. Another much-loved feature is the climber, a structure similar to a tree. It towers above the atrium floor, offering a bird's eye view of the activity below.
Kids also enjoy Pedal Power, a long, narrow space perfect for riding tricycles. Young visitors can learn how to pedal, test their sense of balance, and practice cooperative play as they stop and go on virtual roadways.
The museum also allows children to make crafts, spend some quiet time with a book, and learn some basic scientific concepts. Regulars recommend going during the week if possible, because it can get busy on weekends.
