The Children's Museum, located along the Fort Point Channel in Boston, exists to help children understand and enjoy the world in which they live.
There are 3 different levels of fun, games, and experiences for kids of all interests. From rock walls and a slide/jungle gym to construction zones and an international grocery store. There is also a Kidstage where they perform interactive shows with audience participation.
