The Boca Raton Children's Museum is housed in one of the oldest buildings in the city of Boca Raton. Its admission is kept affordable through the donations and fundraising done by the organization. Interactive play activities include: Ricketts Corner Store gives children the opportunity to shop the old fashion way in this replica of Boca Raton’s first grocery. It is one of the favorite activities for children of all ages. KidsCents Bank Sponsored by First Southern Bank teaches the workings of a bank with teller windows and a working vault. Reading is important for this activity as prizes can be retrieved from the vault if word problems are answered correctly. Oscar’s Post Office offers the opportunity to make handmade postcards to send to a favorite friend. If you know their address you even get a stamp and place it in the Museum’s Mailbox. Dr. Dig’s Back-Porch, our Art & Science Exhibit features fossil and artifact identification along with a terrific life size puzzle created by local artist “Ashley”. Children of the Wilderness exhibit showcases the pioneer history of Singing Pines, the hand-built wooden home (circa 1913) that houses The Children's Museum. Visitors can step back in time to the early days of Boca Raton through the lifestyles of its children. The Pirate Ship and Fort, an outdoor exhibit created by “The Imagineer” Adrian ST Cyr is always ready for an imaginary adventure.
