Museums: Wonderfeet Kids' Museum in Rutland

Rutland is poised to become Vermont's newest children's destination: Wonderfeet Kids' Museum opens downtown this month. For the past two years, community volunteers have hosted small exhibits and creative activities for kids during the city's Friday Night Live summer event series. Now, in a rent-free storefront, they'll have a designated space for interactive education. "We're really looking to be a place where families can learn and play together," says lead organizer Myra Peffer. The new digs will be open year-round on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., as well as by appointment for field trips and birthday parties on Thursdays and Sundays, respectively. The exhibits, initially geared toward 3- to 8-year-olds, will focus on science, technology, engineering and math education, problem solving, and hands-on building.

Wonderfeet Kids' Museum: Located at 17 Center Street in downtown Rutland. Admission is $2. For more information, visit wonderfeetkidsmuseum.org.
