Open year round, the Northwoods Children’s Museum (NCM) is a hands-on play museum offering 22 interactive exhibits in which children can experiment with various roles, develop skills and creativity, and learn science and math concepts in a fun, playful environment. As a community resource, the museum has the mission to enrich lives, support families and make learning fun!
The museum offers 21 permanent exhibits which include:
||Old Time Grocery Store
||Modern Grocery Store
||And Much, Much More!
In addition, there is another exhibit area that changes throughout the year to add interest and highlight seasonal topics. The seasonal exhibit area may feature a Badger Mine, the cultural-theme of Around the World, the science-based Sky and Space, a mini-cranberry bog in October, an ethnic Christmas theme in December and it houses baby animals in the spring.
A member of the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM), our playful exhibits, programs and special events support learning, build confidence and encourages children to connect with the people and places that make up their world. Parents, grandparents and children have the opportunity to spend quality family time together in the exhibits or during our special events.
