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.

Happy Father's Day! The Museum will offer half price admission for dads on June 16.
In-Museum ticket purchases only. Cannot be combined with other discounts.
