From education to adventure, see how multiple exhibits cater to all ages and explore the creative outlook it takes to instill and inspire play time. Get lost in the Imagination Destination, reflect in the indoor Butterfly Garden, and put these unique playtime activities into everyday life. Kids will love exploring the Sesame Street exhibit, or playing in the world of Daniel Tiger!

We think this museum is one of the best things to do in Rochester, NY!
