Fun is waiting for youngsters who live in King County at the Kids Quest Children's Museum. Designed especially for children, this place of play focuses on young imaginations. Exhibits are hands on encouraging exploration and creativity.
The Backyard section was built for toddlers aged 1 to 3. There’s a puppet theater, train table, blanket forts, leaf climber and more. Many different puppets are waiting to come to life and star in their own play or musical. Miniature train engineers won’t want to leave the locomotive and cars travelling the tracks. And, after a trip to the Blanket Fort area little Bellevue residents are sure to re-create the scene once at home. With all the opportunities to climb, energy will definitely be expanded on the Leaf Climber.
Water is a part of everyone’s world. The Waterways exhibit brings this life element to the forefront, and is broken down into activities for all age groups and skill levels. The littlest Bellevue residents will delight in splashing around seeing how objects can sink or float in the Central Stream. Youngsters learn about gravity and energy conversion at the Hydrologic and Pipe Fountain sections.
The Garage provides fun for all ages including adult visitors. Pretend to drive away on a full size Peterbilt truck. In the Service area, an interactive map shows the distance the vehicle can travel on a full tank of gas. Building is in process in the Construction Zone and Construction Yard. The Ball Wall is everyone’s favorite, bringing a new dimension to this classic round toy. Here balls are maneuvered about with pulleys, levers, wedges and wheels. Where they tumble and roll is anyone’s guess.
With so much to see and do, families should consider purchasing an annual membership. Think of all of the educational opportunities that await with unlimited admission. Plan a trip to Kids Quest Children's Museum today.
