Wanting 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 CafÃ© or Bill’s Pizza.
