Pop-Up PlaySpace!

While the PlaySpace Exhibit is under construction look for the Pop-Up PlaySpace signs to find special experiences and programs for your 0-3 year old throughout the Museum.

Two pop-up spaces are designed especially for very young children:

  • Pop-Up PlaySpace 1 - Located on the 3rd floor walkway
    Head to the end of walkway for a staffed area just for 0 to 3 year olds and their caregivers, and a crawl space for infants only. Explore trains, discover sensory materials, and share a book.
  • Pop-Up PlaySpace 2 – Located on the 3rd Floor at the back of the Boston Black exhibit
    Follow the street to the back of Boston Black to find a space filled with activities perfect for curious toddlers. Send scarves soaring in a wind tunnel, cook a pretend meal, and go for a drive.
Floor by Floor with 0 to 3s
There’s something for very young children all over the Museum. If your child likes…
  • Cars and trucks - visit Construction Zone
  • Bubbles and water play - try Bubbles and Peep’s World
  • Pretending - check out Arthur and Friends
  • Puzzles and art - visit Countdown to Kindergarten and the Art Studio
  • Climbing and jumping - explore Kid Power
Quiet/Nursing Areas
Please feel free to nurse anywhere in the Museum. You are welcome to ask a staff member to help you find a quieter spot.

All restrooms have diaper changing stations. The Family Restroom on the 1st floor in Investigate has a child-sized toilet.
