C’MON: Children’s Museum of Naples

My three year old daughter has fallen in love with this interactive museum designed to make learning fun. The museum has so many sections from a grocery store to a restaurant for excellent pretend play. Other areas give you a fun lesson on weather and the seasons while other areas give the kids a chance to get creative with art or building. With all the activity stations, this can provide a full day of entertainment for the family. My daughter did not want to leave the grocery store because it made her feel like a grown up shopping with her cart then checking out.

The Golisano’s Children’s Museum of Naples has an area of the museum set up for a changing exhibit; so this space frequently changes with traveling exhibits that have a unique theme. On a visit this fall, The Children’s China, was a wonderful traveling exhibit that created a great immersion into Chinese culture that adults and children alike enjoy.

I live in Fort Myers Florida, which is about a 40 minute drive, so we plan a day trip here and include lunch at the playground and dig site. This truly is the perfect day trip from Fort Myers or Cape Coral for any mom with young kids. And a must add to the family list of things to do when vacationing with kids in SWFL.
