Our Frequently Asked Questions

What ages is Quaint Corner Children's Museum for?

1 The simple answer is 2-12, but all ages are welcome. It really depends on the imagination. Some exhibits have small parts and are not recommended for toddlers. Some older children still enjoy dramatic play, while others would rather explore science or be crafty.

What is a Children’s Museum?

2 When you think of a museum, perhaps you picture collections behind glass that guests view quietly with their hands behind their backs. This is NOT the case at a CHILDREN’S museum! Instead, please picture:
  • Hands-on exhibits
  • Learning through play
  • Families interacting together
  • Exploring a variety of welcoming environments
  • Pretending to care for animals, to grocery shop, to be a pirate
  • Making a ball float in the air, Looking under a microscope, Putting on costumes
For more information, visit this Association of Children’s Museums at www.childrensmuseums.org.

Are you wheelchair-accessible?

3 Regretfully, we are not able to install any ramps. We do not have an elevator. There are stairs to enter, to exit, and to get to the 2nd floor, 3rd floor, and basement.

Enjoy the Quaint Corner with your family all year.
