Kids can enjoy the outdoors with the Long Island Children's Museum's seasonal "Our Backyard" exhibit. The water play area—H2Oh! Watering Our Backyard—is now open, earlier than normal. 

The outdoor exhibit offers a sensory garden, a water table, and lush plants. There are plenty of interactive elements, including a pirate ship wheel, a hand pump to create summer showers on demand, a "fishing" setup, evaporating easel art, gravel pit, sandpit, and more.

Regular museum hours: Thursday through Sundays, 11am-3pm. Note: 10am-11am is reserved for members only.

Note: Visitors must enter the Museum through the West Doors, have temperature checked, and have admission tickets scanned before entering Our Backyard. Face masks are required in this exhibit.
