Early Childhood Exhibit Hall

Now Open on Level 2

KidsTown has taken over the second floor! The family-favorite exhibit designed for children ages 7 and under has grown, and now features 11,000 square feet of skill-based activities. We’ll encourage them to invent and create, build and test, spark their innate curiosity, make exciting discoveries and author their own experience–which is an elaborate way of saying we let them play to learn!

Start your adventure in the Orange Grove Presented by: Dr.Phillips Charities, now bigger than ever with an interactive factory and farmers market where guests will learn how oranges travel from tree to table. Then have a blast as you climb, design, build, and splash your way through KidsTown’s other interactive zones!

Young families will enjoy a high-quality and immersive experience that invites joyful, hands-on, creative play that is so important to the cognitive development of our children. Fun abounds for even the littlest scientists as they are introduced to science concepts through whole-body experiences, hands-on interactives and opportunities for imaginative role-playing.
