This is a free-roam play session, you and your little ones can move freely through the room to explore the crafts, toys, and musical instruments in whichever order you would like.

We have a wonderful collection of heritage toys for your little ones to explore and play with, giving you a unique opportunity to reminisce over toys you may have played with as a child!

There will be a new craft activity every week! Let your little ones’ creativity flow freely with our stickers, pom-poms, tissue paper, sequins, and other craft supplies.

After the stay and play, you can visit the Museum for free, with fun trails for your little ones!
