Kidscommons offers families with toddlers to early teens a vibrant, safe setting where they can explore together our three floors of hands-on, interactive exhibits. Kids will enjoy designing their city of the future in City by Design, climbing our 17′ wall that replicates the front of the building, creating a masterpiece in the Kids-at-Art studio, learning about another culture in Our House Japan, and taking a trip down our world famous giant toilet in ExploraHouse, while learning about the ins and outs of a house.

Birthday parties and after-hours rentals are also available. Special programs for schools, Scouts and the general public are conducted on a weekly in-house basis to enhance guests’ experience.

I had to drag my son out – I took my six-year-old son to this museum and he had the time of his life in the ExploraHouse exhibit. He briefly looked at the other displays in the museum, but the house was his clear favorite. He absolutely loved the “secret entrances” in the house. We live several states away but my son is already asking when we can go back and visit again.

Great community resource – We took our seven-year-old granddaughter here on a return trip from Tennessee. Lots of different exhibits in language for kids: Japanese cultural exhibit, wild life, mechanics, how a house is built, health, a climbing wall, very cool soap bubble activities, lots of games, and computer activities. We were there for two hours and she was never bored.

A fun place for kids – Our kids are seven and three years old. They love it here, we go a couple of times a year when passing through Columbus. Seven year old likes the toilet slide the best. Other highlights include the climbing wall, bubble room, and the play areas on the first floor. Very reasonably priced. Across the street from the (free) indoor play area in the Commons.
