I really cannot speak highly enough about the new Fall River Children’s Museum. Located on North Main Street, this place is exactly the kind of place Fall River needs for its children. I took the monsters there awhile back and thought I’d share some pics:

One of the first rooms you see when you walk in was my personal favorite, the music room. Here lil’ ones can play tons of different instruments and make their own band on a stage with a karaoke machine. We stayed in this room the longest since the girls both love musical instruments (especially Daddy’s guitar when he’s not looking, shhhhhhhhh!)
|Great balls of fire!|
We went to the “quiet” room next which houses tons of books and puzzles. I didn’t snap any photos in this room but the girls really enjoyed the puzzles and the life sized Elmo plush. Then, it was on to the brand new water room. Fall River’s water room is just as awesome as the ones in Providence and Boston. It offers your basic tubing but also tons of water toys and even water experiments. They offer smocks to keep clothing dry which is def mom approved!

Next up was the very impressive dinosaur room. Here kids can dig for fossils in a giant pit. The great thing about this exhibit is the digging material is simple mulch chips which keeps the messy factor down. The room features a cave to climb through and innumerable din toys.
At this point Lea was just about ready for a nap so we pretty much skipped the rest of the museum, but there is also a Lego room and a construction center. The museum is perfect for both boys and girls, and the employee that was there the day I went was beyond friendly, even doing puzzles with Zoe. In the foyer, the museum has a small gift shop with truly affordable (only a couple dollars) mementos. I actually bought Zoe a Corky Kids dinosaur print dress for I believe $12! I cannot wait to go back because I feel like I could spend so much longer there next time. If you are in the area, I highly recommend you see what The Fall River Children’s Museum has to offer!
