Taking your kids to the Mall of America® for a day of shopping and play just got better! This Saturday, September 26th, the Minnesota Children’s Museum is celebrating the grand opening of their new pop up play space at MOA. This is exciting for the many families in the Twin Cities who already enjoy everything MCM has to offer because they will now be able to visit fun and engaging exhibits at TWO convenient locations. This is also a much anticipated event for families who have yet to experience all that MCM has to offer children and their parents when it comes to playful learning.
The grand opening event of the new Minnesota Children’s Museum Pop-Up space will begin at 10:00 a.m. this Saturday. Families will be able to play and explore two exhibits at the new space, and there will also be a variety of fun, family-friendly activities and drawings going on throughout the day to celebrate the grand opening. The festivities will start with Pros of the Rope, a local jump rope club, at the Sears Court. From 10:00 a.m. – noon families are invited to jump along with Pros of the Rope and learn how to double-Dutch. For those who are fans of Spot, you will not want to miss the opportunity to take a picture with the beloved dog from the children’s books by Eric Hill. Kids will also have the opportunity to paint their own faces and win prizes!
The party will continue from noon – 6:00 p.m. at the museum’s new play space on the third floor of the North Court. Families will be able to explore the new pop-up space’s two exhibits: and Ball-o-rama. The exhibits are sure to appeal to kids of all ages with a variety of interests. They may step into the pages of their favorite books like Where’s Spot?, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. They may also enjoy some hands-on play and challenging tasks in Ball-o-rama by experimenting with golf balls and ramps to learn more about velocity, gravity and acceleration.
All families, whether they are members of the museum or not, are welcomed to attend the grand opening event at the Mall of America. Twin Cities Kids Club members will also get $2 off of each family member’s admission at the new pop-up play space in addition to benefiting from this great discount when visiting the St. Paul location.
