When families play together at The Building for

Kids Children’s Museum, something wonderful

happens. Curiosity is linked to community.

Kids begin to associate the outside world

with excitement, energy and possibility.



What better way to encourage intellectual,

social and emotional growth?

Play is a vital platform for healthy development. It opens the mind like no schoolbook can. It invites connection while fostering autonomy. And it lights a fire in every kid’s heart to never stop imagining, wondering, questioning.

That fire is why we exist.

The Building For Kids Children’s Museum offers specially designed exhibits, programs and family events that engage parents, empower children and energize communities.
Our Appleton holiday app makes visiting Building for Kids and other Appleton attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • We were looking for a place to have some fun and Building for Kids was it! Our favorites were operating a crane, water gallery, giant foam building blocks and the balls moving through clear tubes...

  • We have been to this children's museum many times over the years since we are members of Discovery World in Milwaukee that includes free entrance for me and my family. We realized while traveling this weekend for the Calumet County fair which is close to Appleton that we have not been there is a few years so we decided to give it a go! We were pleasantly surprised to see some new options for playing and they completely ripped out the gift ship to make room for a Schneider Truck and fuel station as well as a mechanic and dock sorting area which is amazing for a truly hands on experience and quite engaging for their imaginations. They also have updated their water room to include a couple new water stations so all in all this was a great new experience for an old great!
  • Attended a family night corporate event - so much fun. Families got to run around and have so much fun.. a great way for the company to grow relationships and family bonds. The great variety of activities made our 2 hour event fly by.
