What is Adventure Play?

Encompassing the entire front yard along 7th Street, Adventure Play is an enticing outdoor exhibit space for children to do what they do best, learn through play and movement! Innovative in its design and repurposing of materials, the whimsical learning environment invites active exploration, robust imaginative play, physical activity requiring both fine and gross motor skills, and thought-provoking discoveries that lead to meaningful learning. Open-ended, imaginative play is what we provide for all of our guests. Let your child be the guide and enjoy the journey because the learning will be meaningful and the memories delightful!

The Adventure Play exhibits are designed to be unique, to arouse curiosity, and to engage the minds, muscles and imaginations of our visitors, making us one of the best places to take kids in Phoenix!

Our indoor exhibits will remain closed for now but we are excited to welcome you back to our new sensory-filled, hands-on Adventure Play!
