“Look what I did!”

What children learn while they’re having so much fun is amazing. At Stepping Stones Museum for Children, the hands-on exhibits and educational programs engage, inspire and delight every child — as well as countless parents and caregivers. Plan on staying a while!

With five main galleries and over 100 hands-on activities, children become wide-eyed with wonder. As they see, hear, touch, feel and do, their ever-growing minds venture to amazing new places.


“I’m hungry!”

Looking for a healthy small snack or big lunch? Our Stepping Stones Cafe is ready to serve you, your family or even feed a whole party or event! With seating for over 100, there’s room for more than ever before. Don’t forget to notice all the great artwork found on our Community Tile Wall as you enter the cafe!


“Can I get a toy?"

Visit the award-winning Age of Reason museum store, packed with educational toys, games, books, shirts and memorabilia you may not find anywhere else.
