Marbles Kids Museum

in Museum, Museum, Childrens, Adventure

Marbles Kids Museum opened our doors on September 29, 2007. The crowd was wowed when we unveiled our new name and new exhibits after a suspenseful 24-day transformation that followed the merger of Exploris and Playspace. Why Marbles? A wall that wraps around the museum is filled with more than one million marbles that light up at night. And Marbles is a nickname for brains. At Marbles Kids Museum, kids are encouraged to use their marbles - learning things through imagination, discovery & play!
