Imagine, create, discover, and explore in this 28,000-square-foot learning playground for young minds. The Iowa Children's Museum is a safe, engaging, hands-on environment for families with children ages birth to twelve. It's a special place where kids and grown-ups can retreat from their busy schedules, spend quality time together, and create memories that last a lifetime. In the interactive exhibit environments, children 'play to learn' about diverse concepts important to their development.
