Fun is our mission and we accomplished this for my three-year old while visiting The Children’s Museum at La Habra. Which is located in La Habra, California.
Everything there is hands on. So you won’t hear a “Please don’t touch that”. In fact they encourage you to feel, play, and participate. You know, the way our toddlers actually learn.
Kian got to dig for fossils, which he loved. He got to press buttons and see the simulation of water flowing (it looked really cool), he pumped gas in a car, and had fun on a peg board light wall, I had never seen one of these before. It was fun spelling out KIANs’ name on it.
There’s also a carousel ride that happens every hour on the hour. This was really cute. All the kids came running into the carousel room when the announcement came through the intercom saying, “it was time”. And although it doesn’t look like Kian was enjoying himself, he was…he just has one of those hard to read faces. Ha ha.
We all sat inside a bus and Kian sat at the wheel and pretended to drive us, he got to check out the inside of a 1942 caboose, pretty cool!
His favorite, was the STEAM room where he tested which items were light enough to float up into the air with some assistance.
He also had a ball playing at the Mini Market, shopping for food, playing at the register, and then taking the food home to prep a nice meal, which he had my husband and I sit down and eat at a kiddie table. He was so cute, so excited, and having a lot of fun. It was definitely a great place for him to explore.
And I bet every other toddler would love it here too. Although, it might not be the best place for older kids. While, there are a lot of things older kids can enjoy, there are age limits and height maximums, so the older kids may miss out on some fun. I think some of the activities or play stations are aimed for 5 and under.
The Museum is located at 301 S Euclid St. La Habra, CA and it’s open Tuesday thru Sunday with hours varying depending on the day of the week. Admission is $10.00 per person, 2 years to adult. And there is a discounted rate if you are a La Habra resident. I’d urge you to check out their website for exact details and up to date information.
I would definitely go back, seeing how much Kian enjoyed himself. I’d especially like to visit again this year because of a new exhibit called “Lindo Mexico” they will be opening from June 19-December 30, 2018. It sounds like fun and also a great opportunity for Kian to enjoy and learn about his Mexican culture.
Thank You for Reading!
