Sunday Funday - The Children's Museum of Cleveland

Welcome to another week of Sunday Funday! My family is out to find adventures every week at local places in our area. I will be featuring a trip we took each Sunday. We live in the Cleveland, Ohio area so most of the locations will be in this area, unless we get adventurous and travel further! If you ever visited the place that is highlighted, let me know you experience in the comments!

Indoor exhibits on multiple levels throughout the museum.

Exhibits include the Big Red Barn, Bridges to Our Community, House and Hospital, Safe Rides For All Kids, Splish Splash, and a seasonal exhibit that changes.

My Kids’ Favorites:
1. Splish Splash – kids get to put on their rain coats and play in a large water table to learn about water transportation, weather, and the earth’s water systems.
2. There is a seasonal sand exhibit in the winter where kids can dig in the sand and build sandcastles. It is literally a huge room filled with sand!

My Favorites:1. Parking is convenient to the front door.
2. Easy to see multiple kids playing at the same time in different areas
3. Great for different age groups, my 5 year old 2 year old can both enjoy themselves.

Time Commitment:
We normally spend about 2 -3 hours at The Children’s Museum of Cleveland. Make a day of it and pack a picnic lunch! There are picnic tables outside as well as inside by the Splish Splash exhibit.
