Wave, swirl, blow and pull. Make, float and even stretch - discover all that you can do with bubbles! One of Boston Children’s Museum’s most beloved and enduring exhibits, Bubbles, part of the John Hancock Science Playground, gives children and adults a chance to experiment and investigate together by creating giant, small and everywhere in between bubbles. And for those little scientists that become especially skilled…maybe it is even possible to hold a bubble in their hands! With a variety of tools and surfaces, this exhibit encourages side by side experimentation between children and their grown-ups, and helps children to develop a beginning understanding of some basic science concepts and scientific processes.

Bubbles is also supported by contributions from Jeptha and Emily Wade, The Kenneth J. Germeshausen Foundation, and the Growdon Family.
