The nation’s first museum for ages 7 and younger set includes plenty of interactive play that just happens to be educational. Your younger children will love the Supermarket, where they can pretend to shop for groceries, or stock shelves. An area devoted to Maurice Sendak’s art brings the pages of Where the Wild Things Are to life. There is a regular schedule of crafts and fun activities, so check online before you visit. A daily show takes place at the Playhouse at 11am and 1pm. The museum moved to Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park and officially opened on October 18, 2008.
