Ogden’s Treehouse Museum Included in List of Best Children’s Museums in America


Early Childhood Education Zone Names the 25 Best Children’s Museums in America.

While museums have traditionally been a hands-off experience, children’s museums are the opposite. They are an excellent way to combine learning with fun, providing an educational experience that keeps children engaged and sparks their imaginations. Early Childhood Education Zone has chosen the top 25 in America based on multiple criteria, including availability and variety of hands-on activities, food options, including restaurant access, if families can bring in their own food and drinks. Also, admission prices, membership benefits, restricted areas for toddlers and preschoolers, traveling exhibits and permanent adventures were all considered.

The full list can be viewed here:

The article’s author, Sara Moore, had this to say regarding the article: “There are some truly wonderful children’s museums in the US, many of which are worth a trip even if it means some travel. We here at Early Childhood Education Zone started with every children’s museum from around the country and after scoring and ranking them all based on our criteria of what is important in a children’s museum, determined these to be 25 museums deserving of recognition.”
