This year, we spent Tyler's birthday at the Cape Cod Children's Museum. I love the Cape Cod Children's Museum and we've been a few times already. It's a roughly 40 minute drive but it's so worth it; we're always there for a few hours!
It's one of the smaller children museums and I love that because it's one big space and I can keep an eye on both kids even if they run to opposite centers. Emmalee loves the kitchen center and spent over a half hour pretending she was a chef, taking our orders, and then "making" us food. Tyler loves the farm area and the boat is a new favorite!
Additionally, there is a huge pirate ship in the middle of the room, plus a puppet area, a submarine area, smaller "houses" that house public service costumes, musical instruments and a post office! There's also a tree house set up, a green screen and lots of little puzzles set up! It's one of those great places that I feel comfortable bringing my kids and letting them run around.
I was able to grab tickets on Groupon but it's super affordable even if you can't find the tickets at a discount.
