Children’s Museum of Easton

Inside the museumWanting to get a Children’s Museum fix while the Providence museum is closed? Forty minutes up 95 you can visit the Children’s Museum of Easton. The museum is located in a converted fire station. Inside, the pole is still preserved, and your child can try climbing up the pole to ring the bell.

In the FETCH! Lab there are science related activities, staffed by an intern. Upstairs there are always art supplies out and suggestions of seasonal crafts. There’s a clinic, a kitchenette, cabin and performance center too. Outside, there’s an exploration center called the Wild Place; you can pick up a scavenger hunt and roam through visiting tree houses, and dig in a fossil pit. Each Tuesday is known as Truck Tuesday, where a variety of trucks, ranging from ice-cream to fire, will pull up to the museum for your kids to explore and learn about.

Make it a full day and stop in for lunch around the corner at the Main Street Café or Bill’s Pizza.

    We went to a party at this museum recently. It’s awesome! I was wishing I’d known about it sooner–since you can get in FREE with your prov. children’s museum membership, it would have been tempting to take the 45 minute drive to calm the whiners down, tire them out at the museum, let them fall asleep on the ride home, transfer peacefully to naps…

    My “big” kids (too old for the museum, but not to big to enjoy it) loved climbing the fire pole, working the wheel chair, and the huge marble run. It has lots of its own charms, not just a smaller prov. children’s museum.

    Well, you know all of that.
