The Boston's Children Museum is a magical place, for those under 5 feet. From the climbing jungle gyms, to construction zones to bubble blowing stations, it's a place to explore, learn and have fun.
Sadly, once you're an adult, that atmosphere usually just leads to a headache.
But that doesn't mean that deep down inside, we're not yearning for the good old days. So for one night only, the Boston Children's Museum will transform into the Boston Grown Up's Museum. That's right - all the fun, adventure and activities, just without the children. A parent's paradise? Definitely, and all parents and non-parent adults are invited to come. It's the perfect time to pretend you're a kid again, and that's something we could all use every once in a while.
On Wednesday, April 9, the museum will be open only to those young *at heart*, meaning 21 years or older. Wine and beer will be served (now we're really talking) and treats will be available for purchase. The adults will be free to play throughout the entire museum, from the three-story Climb, to the art and science exhibits, to, yes, the bubble blowing stations. The museum gift shop will also be selling throwback candies, like Pop Rocks, Gummy Worms and Pez dispensers.
So if you've never been to the Boston Children's Museum, but don't have any kids to take as an excuse to go, haven't been since the field trip days, or now only associate it with screaming babies, get your tickets now. The event will sell out, and then you're out of luck (until next year). Tickets are $25 and can be purchased here.
