Get out and play at Providence Children’s Museum this summer! Kids explore the Museum’s great outdoors as they jump, stretch, splash and climb in its native Children’s Garden. Discover two outdoor play spaces that promote active, physical exploration: The Climber, an artful two-story-high climbing sculpture, and Underland, a whimsical subterranean adventure through worm tunnels and critters’ burrows.
Pack a picnic and join Get Out!, a series of active outdoor programs on Tuesdays in July and August from 1:00 – 3:00 PM. Check out weekly details here.
