“a cooperative learning enviroment for kids”
The Woodlands Children's Museum is a non profit organization that creates opportunities that educate, empower and excite children and their families through play while inspiring a life long sense of wonder and discovery. Presenting opportunities to play and explore in an attention capturing environment. It has a few "exhibit type" venues (aquarium, parrot cage, etc.), but most things are hands-on play or experiment areas. There are several dress-up areas; an acting stage with appropriate sized king, queen, knight and ladies-in-waiting, as well as animal costumes, a fire engine with flashing lights (thankfully no siren) and kid-sized firemen's hats and coats. There are coloring and painting stations and a fishing flume with magnetic fishing hooks (came with boots and waterproof smocks to keep clothes dry). There is an Venturi blower where kids can "float" ping pong balls and colorful scarfs. There are NUMEROUS building things; large Legos on a table, magnetic chutes and tracks to allow a ball to tumble, movable gears to create machines, translucent colored pegs in slots with lights behind, etc. There is also a neat grocery store with an ATM machine, small grocery carts, plastic foods and a laser check-out.
This WAS a fantastic place to take the kids! Until they were outbid for their space in the mall by a Forever 21. Now the museum is in a much, much smaller facility in Panther Creek shopping center. The Woodlands Children's Museum is rather disappointing now.
