Description

The Children's Museum of Boca Raton is an interactive educational institution housed in "Singing Pines," one of the oldest unaltered wooden structures in the city (circa 1913). It was put into service in 1979 by the Boca Raton Junior League as the Singing Pines Museum, and dedicated to the community's children. The Children's Museum of Boca Raton was established soon after as a private non-profit, and is today the oldest children's museum in Florida. Fifteen (15) interactive exhibits lead young visitors on adventures into Florida's pioneer past in Rickett's Olde Timey Grocery and the Mercantile KidsCents Bank, or around the world with FACES multicultural dress-up costumes, instruments and foods. The Museum reaches out to over 60,000 individuals each year through its onsite and outreach programs, as well as with featured special events. In this house kids can touch everything!
