Duke Energy Childrens Museum

Whether you are interested in climbing in the woods, playing on a farm, discovering what happens when you put balls in machines and turn the cranks, becoming the engineer on the waterways or experiencing life in a city just your size, the Duke Energy Children’s Museum can give you that opportunity. The Duke Energy Childrens Museum was a hit and is worth every minute we spent and more!

Explore the Woods

The Woods is an adventure tree house. There are slides, ladders, steps to climb, tunnels to explore. There are places that are large enough and accessible for adults; but there are many other places that are just the right size for the kids. This is the kind of place you just want to play in your own imagination world. It’s a grand adventure.

Exploring the Woods

Personal opinion: This kind of place makes me very nervous as a mom. With three children, it’s impossible to keep an eye on all three all the time. I really wish they would make it where there was a main entrance into this Woods play area. That way the parent could sit at the entrance and know that the kids would not be able to get out.

The Water Area

The water area is always one of my kids favorite places to spend time. The opportunity to become the engineer, build dams, direct the hoses and create waterways is something my kids love. Each child is given a rain vest to help protect their clothes from the water.

    I have that same concern about line of sight at several of our local play areas! Thanks for sharing.
