Parking Near Boston Children's Museum
Situated along the waterfront, right on Boston's Fort Point Channel, the Boston Children's Museum cultivates learning in a kid-friendly, fun, and enjoyable atmosphere. In total, the museum features 19 exhibits and nine ongoing programs. The museum also regularly hosts meetings as well as dinners. Forty-foot glass windows that overlook the bay make its dramatic atrium the perfect space for receptions of all types. And, not to forget the children, the museum is also the ideal place to host a child's birthday party.
Some of the museum's more popular exhibits include Bubbles, where kids learn how to blow giant soap bubbles, and Kid Power, where children learn to use pedal power to make enough electricity to light up a dance floor. Kids get a chance to operate a jackhammer, ride a real bobcat, and deploy a team of trucks to their own construction site at the Construction Zone Exhibit.
Its location in Boston's Seaport District also makes a visit to the Boston Children's Museum an all-day affair for many families. Just steps away from the museum, the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum features a full-scale replica of an 18th-century sailing vessel, interactive exhibits, and costumed tour guides. Several local breweries, along with some of the city's best seafood restaurants, make the area popular with parents, as well.
