We love to look for educational activities during our travels. It’s a great way to facilitate learning while on vacation. California is a wonderful destination to do just that!
We were lucky enough to visit Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert during our stay in Southern California. The Children’s Discovery Museum is located in Rancho Mirage, just a quick 20 minute drive from Palm Springs. It features hands-on exhibits for kids of all age groups.
Every corner of the museum had something for the kids to engage in. They were able to play in a make believe grocery store where they pushed around a cart and went shopping in the store. They had the best time.
They also really enjoyed the make believe pizza parlor. It was so cute watching them put together the ingredients, placing them in the oven, and walking the finished pizza over to me, the customer. So fun!
There’s also more to explore when you step outside. We had a good time playing around in the sound garden.
All of the exhibits were wonderful and engaging. Even my husband and I got in on some of the action! Our kids had a blast experiencing all of the different areas of the museum. We can’t wait to visit again when we are back in the area. Thanks, Children’s Discovery Museum, for hosting us!
