The holidays have passed, there is a still almost a week of winter break left.  Have you heard ‘I’m bored’ yet?  The Children’s Museum of Southern Minnesota has you covered.  The Escape in the Loft program is designed for kids of all ages and their adults.  This year, the museum is hosting the first-ever escape room in the loft!  You can find the clues, solve and make puzzles and have fun with your family and friends!  The escape room is designed and facilitated by Teen Volunteer Playworkers.  

Here are the hours:

Friday, December 27: 10 am – 12 pm & 1 – 3 pm

Don’t forget the Northwoods Winter exhibit is back this season!  This indoor winter wonderland is a favorite for families and children of all ages!  Enjoy daily snowball fights, ice fishing, snowman building and dog sledding.  Then, go inside the cabin for games and cookies by the fire.  

Still looking for a holiday gift or hoping to create lasting memories for your family in the new year?  Museum memberships are a great gift!  Family memberships start at $108.
