All aboard! Where is your train headed? Watch out for the cows! Get messy. Dance to music. Relax on the waterbed. Put gas in a car. Climb, jump, and slide in the tree house. The first exhibit of its kind anywhere, PlaySpace, part of the Carolyn and Peter Lynch Early Learning Gallery, was created specifically to spark exploration and creativity in young children ages 0-3 and their caregivers. PlaySpace gives our youngest visitors a chance to explore, experiment, and pretend in a safe place built just for them. The accompanying Family Resource Room even offers an area to have a snack, talk with other caregivers, and take home some parenting information.

Early experiences impact the architecture of the maturing brain. Like building a house, PlaySpace provides experiences to establish a sturdy foundation for all the developmental behavior that follows.
