Kidcity Children's Museum
Located just off the corner of Main Street and Washington Street in Middletown, Kidcity Children's Museum is a home-grown, non profit organization that was founded in 1994. Kidcity consists of three floors for kids ages 1-7 to play and pretend. Their exhibits include a Fishery, where kids use conveyors and pulley baskets to bring in the catch, a Space Age Roadtrip, where friendly aliens take a trip on Route 66; and a pint-sized medieval village called Middleshire, where kids build a castle and keep watch for Vikings. The younger visitors can play in the Toddler Sea Caves, where beginning walkers wave scarves and dance with mermaids (must be age 2 and under). There's also a Main Street, a Farm, and classics like trains, baby dolls, blocks, dress-up, puppets and more.
The mission statement of Kidcity is very straight forward and put’s their young visitors first: “The Kidcity Children’s Museum will celebrate a child’s natural curiosity by offering a downtown playspace where children ages 1 to 7 come with their parents and other significant adults to learn through play. Kidcity is a safe and enriched educational environment that fosters the development of problem-solving skills and creativity. As a child-friendly public space, Kidcity will support every parent’s effort to be the best parent they can be.”
Admission is $10 for kids and parents, babies under 1 are free. For more information visit their website listed below or stop by at 119 Washington St, Middletown, CT 06457 (860) 347-0495
