Overview

The Bigger, Better, Bolder Museum is Open! This is our first major renovation since we opened our downtown St. Paul museum in 1995. Children and adults alike delight in our 10 new exhibits and enjoy a variety of new amenities. A glass addition along West Seventh Street houses The Scramble, a four-story climbing adventure. Elsewhere in the new museum, visitors delight in an updated pretend town, get creative in two maker workshops and engineer their own fun in an air-and-water exhibit. Families also enjoy a bigger toddler gallery and step out into a revamped rooftop and backyard. Kids craft their own adventures in a ninja-training course and a carpet skate park. This is play like it’s meant to be. Natural. Joyous. Genuine. Children will explore, experiment, try new things, test their limits, adapt and grow. Each exhibit helps children develop the life skills they need to succeed throughout life — how to think creatively, make plans, analyze problems, tackle challenges, speak and listen, work as part of a team and more.

We spent the majority of a day here exploring the museum and then exploring surrounding St. Paul. My twins had a blast and the staff there could not have been any more helpful!

The museum had something for all my three kids of different ages and personalities. There is lots of room for active, physical, imaginative play. The water area was particularly popular with the little ones. And the roof top play area was great for sunny days....More

We took our kids here and they loved the interaction. However, avoid holiday breaks or weekends if possible. Parking ramps across streets are attached to skywalk, no coats needed. Kids under 10 will love it.
