When the weather outside is too cold to play, kids in North Fairbanks homes head to the Fairbanks Children’s Museum. The museum’s philosophy is that children learn best when they are allowed to explore their environment and play naturally. Everything in the museum is focused on providing a rich, hands-on experience for kids. Kids can play at the water table, look at rocks and other objects under a microscope, draw, wiggle and dance. Most Wednesdays at 11 a.m., kids and their grownups come for Mess Makers. Play with water beads and shaving cream, make crafts from handprints, or create art with toy cars. You never know what fun and creative activity the people at the museum will come up with!
Families from North Fairbanks homes should consider purchasing a membership to visit the museum for free all year long. Members also get discounts at the museum store, special rates for birthday parties, a 10% discount at the museum store, and more. If you’re looking at North Fairbanks real estate for sale with kids, stop in at the museum to let them get their wiggles out. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed Mondays.
