This exhibit is for ages 5 and under.

Rediscover these experiences inside your preschooler's favorite exhibit:

  • Explore and discover an underwater pond habitat.
  • Create an original work of art in the Art Studio.
  • Launch balls through the Reaction Contraption.
  • Build a giant tower in Blockopolis.
  • The Water Table

Playscape is family-friendly too!

Diaper bags, bottles, pacifiers, and so much more! Outings with little ones can be quite an undertaking. That's why we made Playscape® as hassle-free as possible for caregivers with amenities like private nursing areas for moms, family restrooms, and diaper-changing stations.

Please note, the Playscape water table is treated in a manner consistent with and to the same standard as a public swimming pool.  As a result, the products used to disinfect and treat the water could create smells similar to chlorine and others found in pool environments.  

Playscape is made possible through lead gift support of PNC Foundation, with major support provided by The Efroymson Family Fund, a CICF Fund, W.B. Fortune, the Joseph F. and G. Marlyne Sexton Family, The Children’s Museum Guild, the Harlan Family Foundation, the Ruth Lilly Philanthropic Foundation, Jane and Steve Marmon, Jerry and Elsie Martin, Randall and Deborah Tobias, and Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St.Vincent.
