You plan a phenomenal day outdoors with your kids and they are so excited, but then the weather changes and you must cancel those plans. Everyone is heartbroken. You start wondering, “What kid-friendly activities in Minneapolis are there to do indoors?” Don’t worry; there are plenty of indoor activities that Minneapolis residents love!
Let’s have a look at some great indoor activities you can enjoy with your children.
First things first, let’s get moving by going to the Transportation Museum. The Transportation Museum is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays. It even has train rides on Saturdays. There is also a toddler time on the first and third Wednesday mornings. If you have a group you can arrange for the museum to be opened at another time, too!
Minneapolis Institute of Art
Another one of the many educational indoor activities Minneapolis offers is the Minneapolis Institute of Art. It is open Tuesdays through Sundays. Tickets for all regular exhibits are free. It offers audio tours – on your smart devices or you can rent them when you are there – so you can maximize your learning and your fun. It even has some material that is targeted specifically at kids.
Great Mall of America
How about you head to the Great Mall for fun for kids in the Minneapolis area? No, we are not saying to take them shopping. The Great Mall has some great attractions. Specifically, we recommend you check out the Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium. It has a phenomenal 500,000-gallon tank that has sharks and all kinds of other cool sea life. You can even pet and feed the stingrays.
Minnesota Children’s Museum
The Minnesota Children’s Museum is another great outing. It is open Tuesday through Sunday. At any time, it has a variety of exhibits that touch on all different areas of science – from earth science to understanding how force works. It also has a toddler area.
Zero Gravity Trampoline Park
Zero Gravity may be the place with the most fun things to do indoors for kids. With laser tag, a climbing wall, toddler area, aerial challenge, foam pits and more, our attractions will bring you back time after time, even when the weather is delightful. This isn’t just for the kids but all who are kids at heart! It is a great way to get your exercise while the kids have a ton of fun. Prices are reasonable with a variety of choices from unlimited to a single attraction pass. Have a question or want to arrange something special? Feel free to contact us for more information.
