EXHIBITS

Lewisburg Children’s Museum was founded in 2016 by a dedicated group of parents and educators with a vision to provide interactive educational experiences that foster learning through play. The Museum occupies 9,000 square feet of space on the second floor of GreenSpace Center (the former Lewisburg Area High School building).

Educational programming is available at the Museum. Children can participate in music classes, art workshops, language classes, and science activities. Preschools and elementary schools can experience group/school visits at the Museum and children can celebrate birthdays in the Museum’s dedicated party room.

Space & Science
Space & Science

Space & Science features our solar system and constellations, complete with a spaceship. Children can also find Mission Control- the perfect place to turn dials, flip switches, and make announcements as they prepare for launch. Children are invited to move throughout the room as scientists and engineers, learning about physics and astronomy, energy, materials science, chemistry, electricity, geology, and telecommunications.

Play Cafe

Explore the Farm Yard. The practices that are so vital to our surrounding community are illustrated through raised garden beds where children can plant and harvest produce to take to the nearby Farmer’s Market and Play Cafe.




Grocery Store

Our simulated Weis Grocery Store exhibit allows children to select foods off the shelves, put them in the cart, and then take them to checkout. Grocery shop for your favorite meal, or grab an apron and act as store clerk.



Creation Station

Creation Station allows children to find their inner artist. Here visitors can find materials waiting for them to create their masterpiece. When they are finished, projects can be left to dry and then are ready to take home at the end of the visit (leaving the mess behind). Then, hit the stage, where young actors can perform plays, complete with props and costumes.
