This amazing attraction was hit hard during Hurricane Sandy but it came back stronger and now has a new exhibit this year- sharks! If you’re looking to get your kids some exposure to ocean life and life under water, this is the perfect place. There’s also a living recreation of the pacific coastline and exhibits with over 35 species of underwater animals to learn about.
Visiting this museum can be both a fun and educational experience for children and parents alike. Here, you’ll find tons of exhibits- everything from dinosaurs to samples from outer space, and quite frankly, it can be a dazzling experience altogether. Plus, if you visit during the right time, you might also get to enjoy the sleepover that the museum occasionally hosts. How cool is that?
Little ones living in an urban oasis definitely need to give this place a visit. The New York Botanical Garden will give you and your kids that dose of nature combined with some solitude, making it the perfect place to rejuvenate the senses. The garden also frequently hosts craft projects and programs for children. There’s a lot for young minds to discover about plant life and stimulate their own green thumbs.
Children thrive with hands on experiences and this museum boats five floors of that! There’s an outdoor activity area in the warmer months where children can enjoy being in the water and learn about its different properties. This is the prefect combination of learning and fun sure to keep your littles engaged for hours. Bring a good book to read as they explore or jump in and enjoy the fun!
