Truckee KidZone: A place to play   Leave a comment

_MG_9310-XL

Soon the dust will settle under a fresh dumping of rain, and we will all be happy mountain bikers, hikers and leaf peepers. But then those pesky and lovely children who reside in our mountain homes will look out the window at the steady rain coming down and say, “I’m bored! What are we going to do?” And you, being the brilliant parent you are, know the answer: The Truckee KidZone.

The KidZone Museum is located at 11711 Donner Pass Road. It’s the large white dome between Truckee High School and the Fire Station. At the Museum you will find a hands on museum and a place for young children to play. There is an outdoor nature play center, an Art Studio, indoor play structure and a Scientastic lab where kids can join in on weekly hands-on science activities. A highlight of the KidZone is the Take Flight Tahoe hands-n play exhibit, which comes complete with a plane, from which kids can communicate with the control tower. Once they are finished flying they can go fix stuff in the airplane hanger, before retiring to the hotel and café they will visit while traveling.

All the Museum exhibits are created with the same philosophy in mind, learning through play. Kids have fun, work off excess energy, and learn along the way. In fact, perhaps they will have such a good time at the KidZone, they will want to go there on a sunny day.

Summer hours are Tuesday-Sunday 10:00 am to 1:30 pm. Starting October 15th, winter hours go into effect:  Tuesday-Friday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 am to 1:30 pm. KidZone Museum is also available for parties when closed to the public. Information is available at http://www.kidzonemuseum.org/ or (530) 587-5437.
