Healthyville® | January – Labor Day 2017

Now through Labor Day 2017



The museum’s beloved Healthyville exhibit is back and better than ever! New additions to the popular experience allow us to learn even more about fitness and nutrition:

  • "Shop" for healthy foods in the market
  • Brush a giant set of teeth
  • Study circulation, digestion and other bodily functions
  • Learn how to identify foods as go/slow/whoa
  • Play food detective
  • Inspect the ins and outs of a giant nose
  • Row a boat in tandem with a lifesize skeleton
  • Design a warm up and cool down routine

Children and adults will have hands-on opportunities to explore topics in ways that help them understand their bodies, understand the importance of making healthy choices and apply concepts in everyday situations. Eat smart, move more, live well!

Healthyville® was created by Stepping Stones Museum for Children as a part of its Healthy Children, Healthy Communities® initiative.

Mega Making

Coming September 2017

Mega Making, our newest exhibit experience, was designed by Stepping Stones to celebrate creativity in our children! They will be the future engineers, designers, inventors, artists, teachers, scientists and the ones shaping the world - maybe in as little as 10 years from now!

Making at its core is the act of creating something. The current "Maker Movement" in the USA is working to inspire students to become creators of learning rather than passive consumers of learning. Mega Making takes a constructivist approach to learning by giving adults, children and students the materials, tools, support and creative freedom while providing an opportunity to build 21st century skills including Flexibility and Adaptability, Initiative and Self-Direction, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving and Creativity and Innovation.

The Mega Making exhibit experience is organized into five main areas:
- Art
- Textiles
- Construction/Woodworking
- Book Nook/Future Ideas

Using real materials and real tools, young makers can explore a variety of materials, techniques and projects! Our staff members are here to help get you started, whether it’s working a needle and thread for the first time, practicing using wrenches and screwdrivers, tinkering with batteries and buzzers or picking out the perfect artist medium. Something for all ages, best for 5 and older. Children and their adults will surely enjoy a unique experience together!
