Jude is an active learner. Meaning he has to constantly be moving while doing most anything. All kids are inquisitive and love hands on learning. We love Marbles Kids Museum in downtown Raleigh because it allows us to interact with life and learning.
Marbles is a fun, interactive museum designed for children to learn as they play. They have an Around Town exhibit where kids can pretend play with miniature everyday adult items like cooking, transportation, shopping, gardening, work, etc. There is also the Splash area which is just as fun as it sounds, water! The IdeaWorks Gallery is place where creativity comes to live with building, crafts and construction. You can even explore your inner artist in the Art Loft. The newest exhibit, Moneypalooza, teached kids the importance of establishing healthy money habits. Finally, there is the Power2Play World Tour which lets you explore different sports around the world.
In addition to all the great exhibits there is always something fun going on at Marbles so be sure to check out the calendar for special events. Weather you’re looking for a rainy day adventure or hands on active learning Marbles is the place to play. Also, don’t forget to check out what’s playing at the IMAX theater.
About Marbles Kids Muesum
Marbles Kids Museum opened on September 29, 2007 following the merger of Exploris and Playspace. Why Marbles? A wall that wraps around the museum is filled with more than one million marbles that light up at night. And Marbles is a nickname for brains. At Marbles Kids Museum, kids are encouraged to use their marbles – learning new things through imagination, discovery and play.
