Hands-On Exhibits

Children to who love to build and tinker will enjoy the Building Zone, Tinker Workshop, and Explore and Discover Zone. Build a creation on the interactive Lego wall, make new creations with child-safe tools, and experiment with electrical circuits. Your child will love learning through this explorative play! Make-believe play in Our Town and Kid’s Clinic, where your child can reel in a fresh catch and treat stuffed animal patients. Budding artists will love A Stroke of Genius, where they can create masterpieces with paint, clay, textiles, and more. Parents, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show as your child is the star of their own onstage production. With a stage and puppet theater, children can bring real and imaginary characters to life.

In addition to their regular exhibits, check the museum’s calendar for monthly special events. Monthly Family Free nights offer families free admission from 4pm-7pm. Other special events such as holiday craft nights or special toy exhibits are also offered periodically. Browse their website for more information.

While many museums prohibit visitors from touching, the Galveston Children’s Museum is exactly the opposite. All of their materials are child-friendly, and exploration is encouraged!
