Exhibits

At Marbles Kids Museum we believe that children learn best through play and discovery. Our exhibits and programs are designed to build imagination through self-led exploration of new ideas and experiences.

Our exhibits and programs deliver five core initiatives:


Create. Innovate.
We give kids tools and resources to imagine, invent, experiment and solve.
Be Healthy. Be Active. We provide play environments that promote physical activity and healthy choices.
Build Your Brain. We deliver playful experiences that help kids develop skills for success in learning and life.
Connect and Communicate. We help kids learn to work together to explore new ideas.
Grow Up Green. We call kids into action to help care for the earth and preserve its resources.
