Last summer we traveled all over the western US. We visited many children’s museums but Santa Fe’s is the only one my children still talk about and ask to visit again. It’s a small space compared to others we have visited but it has a perfect layout! I loved that I could play with my baby in the infant/toddler area but still keep an eye on my older two (ages 4 and 8). They loved all the activities and the fact that there were volunteer staff on hand to interact with them. We spent two days there. It was a great museum and a clearly memorable experience for my kiddos.
Our visit to the Santa Fe Children's Museum!
Yesterday I brought my two sons in for the first time and we had so much fun! My 8 year old is autistic and the staff were absolutely amazing with him!
