The Children's Museum is attached to Portola Park. We have a large grass area right outside the Museum, as well as a public playground behind the building where the students can play or eat a snack/lunch. This is also a wonderful time to take photos by our Dino Garden or the front of the Museum. Additionally, we offer Tour Add-On's at an additional cost, which provide a 30 minute activity that aligns with any of our tours.
We offer 3 fun STEM related Tour Add-On's. Each activity is 30 minutes and is led by a museum staff member. Tour add-on's are fun and educational activities that connect with any one of our tour themes.
