Minneapolis Fun With Kids
If you’ve recently purchased a home in MN and moved to the Twin Cities region, you may be wondering what there is to do with the kids to keep them entertained and occasionally have them learn something. Fortunately, you’re in luck, because Minneapolis is full of great things to do with the kids and stuff that parents may enjoy doing, as well!
You might not think it at first, but the Mill City Museum is a popular place to visit with younger kids. The old mill explains the history of Minneapolis and how it became a city, while also telling a bit about the history of flour, which the mill made. There are two films that are appropriate for all ages that are entertaining and informative and kids generally really enjoy them. Each is only around 20 minutes or less and interesting enough to keep everyone’s attention. There are also hands-on activities. Be sure to take the flour tour, which lets you ride in the freight elevator up to the top and when the tour is over, head out on the observation deck for a fantastic view. To top it all off, you get a sampling of fresh-made bread!
For theatre buffs, The Children’s Theatre Company is nationally known, and rightly so, as they specifically do shows that work for kids of all ages and include a lot of interaction, which helps keep the kids focused. There are two 45-minute acts with a 15-minute intermission and you can (and should) buy your intermission snacks ahead of time and they’ll be waiting for you in a bag so you don’t have to stand in line during the short break. If some kids just really can’t sit still that long, there’s a room at the back of the theatre where they can play and work off some energy. Everything is thoughtfully geared to making it a positive experience for everyone.
The Escape Game Minneapolis is something that all ages can enjoy and plenty of adults take part for fun on their own. However, it’s a surprisingly fun thing for kids of a variety of ages to do, though probably best for 6 or 7 year olds and up, depending on your child, of course. The goal is to escape the room within 60 minutes by solving various clues. There’s also a game master there to help you. It’s a fun, interactive activity that also encourages your kids to think critically to solve the clues.
Between Minneapolis and St. Paul, there’s a wealth of places to go. Here are a few more to look into visiting:
- Minnesota Children’s Museum
- Minneapolis Sculpture Garden
- Izzy’s Ice Cream
- Amazing Scavenger Hunt Adventure
- Science Museum of Minnesota
- Minnehaha Park
- Minnesota Zoo
These are just a sampling of the things you can do with kids in Minneapolis. So if you buy a home in MN near the Twin Cities, you can be sure that kids of all ages – and adults – will have plenty to do to keep them entertained and even learn a few things along the way!
