Children's Museum at Saratoga

The Children’s Museum of Saratoga is a great place to learn and play. Exhibits on the first floor include a look at pond life, the art studio, a treehouse, and the science center. Upstairs, groups can explore the miniature town complete with a bank, construction zone, diner, and schoolhouse. They can harvest vegetables in the Farmer’s Garden, play pet veterinarian, and build in the STEM room. As part of a guided field trip, groups may listen to a story, learn about fossils, or even be challenged to build their own roller coaster. Scout programs, including overnights, are also available.
