Minnesota Children's Museum of Rochester
A little over a month ago the Minnesota Children's Museum of Rochester opened in the River Center Plaza (1634 N Broadway St). This last week I was able to visit with the kids for the first time and although the space is quite small, there was still a lot to do and my toddler and preschooler were completely entertained for 3 hours (they didn't want to leave for lunch/naps!). One of their most favorite things (I am not sure if this is an ongoing station or special to the day we were there) was the self face painting area. I love witnessing their creativity and they thought it was a blast to paint themselves. Go here for more information on the visiting exhibits. The museum costs $4.50 per person, under one is free. There are also membership options. Be aware that the museum is not open Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.
