Plan Your Visit

WE HAVE TWO LOCATIONS OF FUN!  

*****Hours and reservation links listed below.

We have two locations located within steps of each other- Curious Kids’ Museum AND Curious Kids’ Discovery Zone! 

A FEW THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE RESERVING YOUR TICKETS:

We’ve heard you! You are loving the limited capacity! More space for your family to play, more exhibit availability and more fun! We’ll continue the online reservations for dates we plan to be busy (school in-service days, Spring Break, Saturdays and summer). Please note: Walk-up sales days that are busier than anticipated may require up to an hour wait to enter.

We are currently not accepting school groups, daycare groups, birthday parties or camps at this time.

Check your time zone! ALL TIMES ARE EASTERN STANDARD TIME.

Admission is for one location. $6 per person ages 12 months and older to each location.

If a date or a location is not listed below, it is closed that day. Check back for June hours.

When you hit the link to reserve a day/time, if an error message pops up when trying to reserve your time, that time is at capacity and not able to reserve anymore tickets. Please try another time or day.

****Please note: PARKING Both locations are surrounded by public parking lots, and spaces do fill up quick (and early!) on warm days, and dates when special events are happening in the downtown area. Plan to arrive a bit early to allow for parking/walking. Some spots/lots are all day, some are 2 hours and some are pay lots.
