Some of the fun you will encounter at The Children's Museum of the Highlands include:
ONE WORLD DINER
This enchanting environment allows visitors of all ages to pretend to cook serve and eat a variety of ethnic foods from all around the world. Wearing traditional costumes from the different areas, participants can serve falafel, tacos, pizza and more all in a realistic diner setting.
MINI GROCERY STORE
Choosing foods and filling a cart may not be fun to adults, but children love the opportunity to make their own decisions and even ring up their purchases on real cash registers with working conveyor belt systems. Of course there is museum money to play with and use for shopping and even making a deposit at the nearby mini bank.
Water play is fun and only a little damp in this area. Visitors can play with a running river, using dams to float boats and ducks. At one end, use the water shooters to make mobiles move and twirl. Aprons are provided to help keep you dry. What kind of waterpower can you harness?
THE ROCK WALL
Boulder climbing is a harder version of traditional rock climbing. Use our rock wall and try to climb 16' sideways without ever touching the ground. You don't need to go up - just sideways - it's harder than it looks!
You won't believe your eyes as you wander through this area. From mirror images to holograms to finding hidden items, your eyes will be tricked into believing what can't be possible - or is it? The exhibit, designed for ages 6 and up, provides an opportunity for children and adults to draw an anamorphic picture, try their hand at mirror writing, and see themselves in a magic fun mirror.
