Portland Children’s Museum – great for too rainy, or too hot, days!

The Portland Children’s Museum is a wonderful, interactive museum of exploration and learning for the younger crowd, ages 10 months – 10 years. With creative and hands- on activities from painting, to puppet shows, to making music, to  dress up, to building inventions, there is plenty to keep little bodies, hands,  and minds occupied and busy! Exhibits do change from time to time ( photo below is from their Sesame Street Exhibit), so check the Children’s Museum site frequently for updates. Starting May 25th they will have  an Exhibit called ” Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice”.
