It’s a chronic parental conundrum: How to combine learning and fun. If anyone in Austin has the solution it’s Thinkery. On the ever-burgeoning Mueller development tract this children’s museum has hands-on exhibits out the wazoo and enough special events and classes to keep all kids busy, from toddlers to tweens. For you jealous adults there’s a monthly, themed night for the drinking-aged that mixes a splash of alcohol in with the second-childhood antics. These STEM warriors won’t let you or your brood down.
A special program for visitors ages 0-3 and their families, providing caregivers and early learners the chance to experience the children's museum together. Thinkery will host two storytimes and free play that support the social, emotional, and cognitive development of the earliest learners. Saturdays, 8-10am.
