Where Kids Rule

Rule the medieval life

This recently renovated area now includes more than 60 individual, hands-on activities focused on math and science readiness - all while having fun!

Enter a fully immersive world through ornate archways and become surrounded by medieval life – its music, people and more. Make your way through the town center, encountering tents, a corral, and on to the centerpiece of the exhibit, the expansive three-story castle where many adventures await.

Exhibit Highlights

  • Build a bridge to cross the treacherous moat.
  • “Shoe” a horse in the Black Smith Shoppe.
  • Understand the transfer of motion using gears, pull levers and rotation of moving parts.
  • Aim and shoot a catapult across the kingdom.

Included with general museum admission, free for members.
