We had an amazing time at the Randall Museum. We couldn't believe it was free. The outdoor space is great, lots of people there with very small children including babies. Cool animal exhibits, great clean toddler play space, and the train exhibit downstairs was a huge hit with my 2 year old. The cafe is great too, but you can bring your own lunch or snacks too. Highly recommend.
Such a great place for kids of all ages. Toddler room, animals, trains galore, earthquakes, fish and what look like some awesome maker classes. Also a great cafe and view from the patio!
