New Waterplay Floor Open!

EVERYONE loves the waterplay! We’re looking forward to seeing the completely renovated floor dedicated to all things wet. We’ve learned to make sure to bring an extra change of clothes because this exhibit is definitely something you’ll want to submerge yourself in (har, har).  :)

We’re Celebrating Smiles

Everytime we pull into the “Fish” parking lot, I’m not sure who has a bigger smile… me or Ryan! We love the welcoming sounds of  chiming playground as we navigate to the building that has such a beautiful, distinctive look to it. We’re celebrating learning, history, science, curiosity and, of course, Pittsburgh.

In the past 4 years, we’ve visited the Children’s Museum at least a half a dozen times. I love that every time we go, there’s something a little different. Exhibits come and go while there are some old faithfuls that thankfully stay the same.
