The Best Museums in the Country for Crawling Babies

Trending Now


She’s on the move, but not on her feet yet. Lucky for you, there are plenty of museums that cater to the crawling set. Even better, a visit won’t break your budget, since kids under one are almost always free-of-charge. Here, you’ll find 14 of our favorite museums for busy crawlers, both large and small, from across the country.

Bay Area Discovery Museum – San Francisco, Ca

The Tot Spot is for babies and toddlers only: kiddos need to be under 42 inches to play inside, so you won’t have to worry about a six-year-old accidentally mowing down your little one. Crawlers can squirm through baby-sized tunnels and conquer mini mountains inside and then check out the stream outside. Bay Area Children’s Museum offers daily drop-in programs, like Storytime and Toddler Circle Time, included in the price of admission. Little ones under six months get in for free; tickets for six to eleven-month-olds are $12.95.
