Looking for an adventure while learning through play? Discover hands-on fun for children of all ages in our eight educational and themed play areas, including two specifically designed for preschool-aged children and younger. We encourage kids to climb, crawl, explore and learn about themselves and the world around them. Go on a wilderness adventure through The Woods, be a part of a complex machine in the Energy Zone and explore the neighborhood in Kids’ Town. Dive into arts, culture, reading, science and more with over 1,800 hours of programming each year. At the Duke Energy Children’s Museum, consistently ranked in the top 10 children’s museums in the U.S., fun and learning go hand in hand.
