At the Children’s Museum of Tacoma we believe play is the elemental component of children’s learning. Our new specially designed museum experience engages young children and their adult caregivers in self-directed play through innovative design that celebrates imagination and encourages creativity. The museum’s playscapes and programs support children’s growth through play by addressing age-appropriate development, especially in the areas of creativity, social and emotional skills, cognitive and critical thinking skills, gross and fine motor development, and early literacy learning. Core early childhood experiences form the platform for play in the Museum’s five main areas: Woods, Water, Voyager, Invention, and Becka’s Studio. Come party at the Museum!
