We finally went to the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum in Poughkeepsie today. It has been on my to-see list for so long that I almost forgot about it until Tom suggested it this morning. It was easy to get to. (We went via the Mid-Hudson Bridge). The kids loved it! There is lots to do there, and I certainly got my morning workout chasing after them and going up and down the stairs. It is also very warm inside there, just fyi. The heat was working extremely well!
There is a sectioned off area that is great for toddlers in the main level, as well as a firetruck, make believe bakery with a play oven and toy cupcakes. The upstairs has a Disney radio box with working microphones, and river table with toy frogs and turtles. There is a skate park for skateboarding adjacent to the parking lot. Admission is $7.50 per person. 1 year old and unders are free of charge. The Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum is a great place to take the kids on a rainy day in the Hudson Valley, or any day really. We will definitely be back. Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum, 75 North Water Street, Poughkeepsie, NY (845) 471-0581. Do check out their website before you go. They have tons of special events for familes.
