Building for Kids, Appleton

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.

  • This is a great place for kids & one of the largest children’s museums that we've been to (two floors of fun). They have a nice area for toddlers, life size fire truck & so much more.  more »
  • The art area is fantastic. Kids can create for hours. A space where kids have options and can spend hours. We will go again. Free if part of ASTC.  more »

  • They need to focus on maintaining the exhibits. I’ve gone here with my kids for years and there is always something wrong with the crane, the water play area, and the ball play area. Which are the most interactive exhibits. Many of them are cheap/quick fixes. They should also consider investing or getting new exhibits sponsored by local businesses.
  • In terms of activities I love this place for little humans. It also enjoy getting involved with my daughters curiosity. The down side is there have been lights and toys broken for over a year. We also all seem to get sick after going no matter how well we sanitize.
