Westchester Children’s Museum:
Rye, NY


Westchester Children’s Museum, located on the boardwalk near Rye Playland Amusement Park, is one of the few places that is not only toddler and young child friendly, but actually caters to the little tikes.

I recently visited the museum with my little nieces and nephews. Although the museum is not especially large, the children really enjoyed the interactive activities. There are plenty of staff members ready to help the children with their projects. They also put back all the supplies after the children use them, so that all will be ready for the next group of kids to use.

The activities include a tubular fan that blows up papers and the like. Children can build their own roller coaster and send a ball down the track. There are coloring projects, water painting and building activities. The Westchester Children’s Museum offers wholesome quality family fun.
