What to do with your kids when camp is over, but school hasn’t started yet?! I took the kids (2yr and 4yr) to Kidcity Children’s Museum in Middletown! Kidcity is a children’s museum with three floors of imagination play, where kids ages 1 to 7 play pretend with their favorite grown-ups.
Their exhibits are handmade and one-of-a-kind, built by in-house artists who love inspiring playfulness in visitors of all ages.
A museum is usually a place for looking, but a children’s museum is a place for doing! Each of their hands-on exhibits will jumpstart your child’s imagination…and yours too.
There are SO many new things to discover there, and watching the kids interact and figure out how things work, I knew that their imaginations were endless! It was also an easy 45 minute drive from Fairfield!
The museum is made up of 2 floors (Lower East and West Side) and (Upper East and West Side). The exhibits include a Space Age Roadtrip, The Farm, The Fishery, Clipper Ship, Musical Planet, the HUGE Middleshire and much more!
There is also a basement level that is age restricted for Ages 2 and younger that includes their Toddler Sea Caves. On the first day of every month, they have a “Big Swim” where they allow older siblings (3yr and up) to join in on the fun!
Kidcity is designed for little kids (age 1 to 7) and their favorite grown-ups. Please bring at least one adult for every four children.
