Daily Funtivities

Educational and engaging activities facilitated by our outstanding team of PLAYologists!

Just listen for the daily “Funtivity” announcements!


No matter what your child’s passion is, you’ll find a special program just for them where play is learning.  The Iowa Children’s Museum offers different programs for your family’s different needs.

You’ll find daily Funtivities that last ten minutes while you explore the exhibits, drop-off Day Camp programs lasting from a half-day to all week long, and outreach programs where the Museum comes to your school or group with hands-on activities to support your curriculum.
