The Common

Age: 3-5, 6-8

Category: Exploring


The Common is an open-ended space for play of all kinds! Visitors can interact with shadow walls, create colorfully lighted patterns on the tangrams table, or play musical chairs with chairs that play music when you sit on them. Learn new games and play old favorites on our giant chessboard and smaller game tables. The Common features brain-building fun alongside activities that help children develop gross motor skills. Check the calendar for events happening in this exhibit, from dance performances to musical acts to live animal meet and greets.
