Where learning is always fun!
If you’re looking for fun – you’ll definitely find it here – giggling, hopping, splashing, wiggling, st-r-r-e-e-t-ching, swirling, squeezing your way through an amazing world of science, history, technology and culture made for toddlers to teens. You’ll use every one of your senses as you interact with more than 100 imagination-sparking exhibits! And all this play-filled learning happens not in just one place, but TWO, in fun-loving St. Joseph, Michigan!
1. Explore wonders along the bluff
Curious Kids’ Museum is downtown along the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. There are two floors chock-full of ways to learn every minute from plucking apples off a tree to becoming an “atom” crawling and sliding through a nuclear power plant. You’ll also have a blast exploring at our special programs, workshops and camps!
2. Discover even more fun down by the beach
Curious Kids' Discovery Zone is our annex in the Silver Beach Center (a short walk down the hill from The Museum) that brims with even more hands-on activities. Come play in the Lake Michigan Water Table, Wave Table and Water Power Tower! Can you walk on water? Climb the new Lighthouse Tower! Dance in the virtual reality game. Take the Kids' Climbing Wall challenge and get across in one try! See what's new in the Gast Traveling Exhibit Gallery and much more. Did you notice...our roof is ALIVE? Curious Kids' Discovery Zone is proud to have a Green Roof. This is a roof that is not only good for the environment, but really cool to look at, too!
This is one kid-friendly town!
You’ll find there’s even more to do at nearby Silver Beach and the great Whirlpool Compass Fountain across the street. Stroll along the bluff’s History Trail and shop downtown. See if there’s a dance in the Shadowland Ballroom. Ride the beautiful Silver Beach Carousel or watch a sunset over Lake Michigan. And extend your fun with delicious food from our restaurants and memorable overnight stays at our nearby hotels.
We’re ready to play! Are you?
