New Orleans Louisiana Children’s Museum

Untitled-1

New Orleans is known as a city with style, where folks put their heart and soul into having a good time. It’s no wonder, then, that the Louisiana Children’s Museum was ranked as the “#1 attraction for Child Appeal” by the well known Zagat Survey. You and your family are invited to play, explore, listen, move and learn in this outstandingly kid friendly environment. The Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, all year round, (closed most major holidays) and offers a 30,000 square foot expanse of interactive exhibits just waiting to be checked out by little folk. Located in New Orleans’ Arts District (formerly the Warehouse District), near the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, the museum can be reached by public transportation and is wheelchair accessible.

Learning as Fun on the First Floor

How would your children like to learn today? Not sitting still in a classroom? Fine. On the museum’s first floor, they can scale a rock climbing wall to find out more about how their bodies work. Or perhaps they’d prefer to step inside a gigantic, larger than human sized bubble to see how the world looks from another perspective. They can drive an emergency vehicle or “work” as a safety inspector to learn more about how to keep themselves, other human beings and their environment safe. Stuffee, an enormous – and enormously cuddly – unzippable stuffed doll, teaches all about the organs inside our bodies.

More in Store Upstairs

Head up to the second floor to check out the Art Trek! This is a professional class art studio that encourages experimentation with virtually every kind of media. In the New Orleans: Proud to Call it Home Architecture Exhibit, children can design and build components of their own dream home. Another New Orleans-centric exhibit is the Little Port of New Orleans where kids steer ships and load cargo with a crane, or enjoy all the luxury of cruise on an expensive ocean liner. Your son or daughter will have a great time shopping or clerking in the Little Winn Dixie Grocery Store, finding out about healthy eating and menu planning along the way.

And Still More

The youngest toddlers need and deserve a space of their own to play and learn at their natural pace. First Adventures is a secure enclosed area where you can help your tot investigate an array of enticing, bright colored toys, books and games, including cooperative toys. Every Tuesday and Thursday morning a special program, Toddler Time, is held in First Adventures to foster small children’s development on the levels of movement, communication and social interaction. Even the Museum Store continues in the vein of combining education and entertainment, with a wide variety of toys to excite your children’s imagination, curiosity and creativity.

New Orleans is a popular destination in the winter and has so much to see and do that you’ll appreciate staying in a comfortable hotel with easy access to everything. The nicer and lower priced New Orleans hotels tend to fill up fast, though, so it’s a good idea to reserve in advance.
