Plan Your Visit

WE HAVE TWO LOCATIONS OF FUN!  

Yes! Online reservations are required. It’s easy! Hit link below and either Register (for first time users) or hit Sign In once you’ve clicked on the link and opened our website.

*****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 summer 2022. 

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 to Curious Kids’ Museum is $8 per person ages 12 months and up.

Admission to Curious Kids’ Discovery Zone is $6 per person ages 12 months and up. 

Prices are for one location only.

If a date or a location is not listed below, it is closed that day. Check back soon for July 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.  All parking lots below the bluff (near our Discovery Zone) are paid lots. Above the bluff (near the Curious Kids’ Museum) some spots/lots are all day, some are 2 hours. Plan to arrive a bit early to allow for parking/walking.
