The Museum offers multiple areas that each have a teaching aspect to it. The Art Studio allows children to explore their creativity with painting, drawing, and crafts. They use recycles items and child size tools to create innovative art. Blocks helps the children learn about colors and shapes. It also has a light box that allows them to play with different shapes and putting them together with a combination of colors.
You can also take an adventure through the Cave, which is newly updated for children and adults to explore and discuss the stalagmites and stalactites as they crawl through the space exploring. The Dairy Barn shows children that milk comes from a cow instead of the grocery store with a life size cow that can be milked.
The Dinozone is sure to be a show stealer, with their very own dinosaur Seymour. He has gotten some company recently; you can discover fossils in the dig pits. They have replicas of a Stegosaurus, and a baby Triceratops and Apatosaurus. The Little Farm has just recently opened also it is only for the little ones though three and under. There is a crawler patch that they can make there way through, a pretend pond that they can fish and ride a boat in. They learn sorting by types/shapes and colors through the farmers market.
The Living Tree House is an awesome way to get a bird’s eye view of the whole museum. The little ones can get some of their abundant energy while navigating through the tree. CMoR Playhouse will get the dramatic side out where the can put on a play or use puppets in the puppet theater. The Town Square is at the center of it all, which is a mini Richmond with cobblestone carpet, a school, grocery store, café, garage, TV station and so much more. Role-playing is used throughout the Town Square. James River Water Play, where you can float boats down the river. It offers the real features of the James, its islands, bridges and canal.
