Outdoor Adventure transformed more than 1.3 acres of previously inaccessible land around the Museum into a remarkable outdoor play space.

Designed by a team of education experts, based on their extensive observations of kids at their best, Outdoor Adventure welcomes the whole child—mind, body, and spirit—to embrace a world of exploration and discovery.

We encourage you to come prepared for whatever the weather might bring and to expect to encounter insects, frogs, birds, or other animal life. The exhibit, while being carefully designed to engage children in positive, educational nature play, is meant to mimic the diversity, beauty, and wildness of the outdoors.
