Curiosity Connection™ is an exciting Pennsylvania themed hands-on play environment where children ages 1 - 5 and their families can
play, discover and learn together.

Museum Hours


Children need to play. Play encourages creative thinking, problem solving, pre-academic skills, language development, social interaction and motor development. These important skills enhance self esteem, prepare children for school and beyond, and are further enriched when grown-ups join in the fun. So let your child take the lead and have a great time!
