New Balance Foundation Climb

New Balance Foundation Climb

© Bill Gallery

Climb and explore. Find different paths. And challenge yourself to go higher and higher! This incredible 3-story climbing sculpture is made of flowing curved platforms, rising up through the glass lobby of Boston Children’s Museum and inviting children to scamper and scale this vertical maze. Children are both challenged and delighted as they attempt safe risk-taking and find their way through the 3D, full body puzzle. Estimating space, planning moves, and looking for the best path are all part of the learning in the New Balance Foundation Climb. And parents can join in as they follow the route alongside the sculpture, encouraging their children to find their way and try different paths, all while enjoying a fantastic panorama of downtown Boston.
