Open with New Exhibits: Pretend City

Pretend City Children’s Museum has reopened to the public with two new exhibits for kids to explore!

Little mechanics can step into the Super Service Center,  a pretend auto shop equipped with all the tools they need to perform maintenance on a kid-sized car mounted on a lift. The exhibit includes a tool chest, pretend wrenches and lug nuts, mufflers to replace (and a creeper to take you under the chassis), containers for oil, washer fluid and coolant, tires to change, and a pneumatic drill with realistic sound effects.

The Mind + Body Studio provides a peaceful space for parents and children to practice mindfulness, emotional regulation, and yoga exercises. 

Monday & Tuesday – Closed
Wednesday – Saturday: 10am-noon and 1 pm-4pm
Sunday: 11am-1pm and 2pm-5pm
