Treehouse Children’s Museum Attractions

Treehouse Museum is a great place for your kids’ imagination to run wild! There is a variety of themed galleries at the Treehouse Museum; there is sure to be something to pique your child’s interest and there are endless opportunities for them to have fun!

The Science Circus room has fun physics-based activities, including Air Tubes, the Laser Table, the Subaru Gravity Race Track, and more. Kids can make their own art at the Art Garden. Visit the Barn room and ride one of their hand-carved horses in the Rodeo Arena. The World Village is always an adventure with houses representing different countries, as well as some really big world maps! And finally, if you need a moment of quiet, take a breather in the beautiful Walk in the Woods gallery.

There are also daily family programs that are included with admission.

For example, every afternoon you and your kids can participate in a children’s book-based art activity in the Art Garden. Your kids may also have the opportunity to join the Treehouse Museum staff to help retell favorite fairy and folk tales in the museum’s famous ParticiPlays or PaticipatoryStories. 

In addition, every Saturday, families may participate in STEM activities that promote an excitement for science, technology, engineering, and math. Participants get the opportunity to play a magical numbers game, explore light and color, or build a tower – to name a few.
