Get out and play at Providence Children’s Museum this summer! Splash in a fountain and soak up the sun in the Museum’s native Children’s Garden – a perfect place to play, explore and take a break with a picnic lunch. Discover two outdoor environments that promote active, physical play: The Climber, an artful two-story-high climbing sculpture, and Underland, a whimsical subterranean adventure through worm tunnels and critters’ burrows.
Explore the Museum’s great outdoors during Get Out!, a series of active programs on Tuesdays in July and August from 1:00 - 3:00 PM:
