Children’s Imaginations Take Center Stage at Play Street Museum

July 7, 2021

Imagine taking the hands-on exhibits and imaginative play of a children’s museum and putting them in a space as warm and comfortable as your playroom at home. Also imagine that you can sit back and relax as you watch your children or grandchildren play just a few feet away, or that you can join in on the fun.

Now imagine that someone else follows your kids around, keeping the museum neat and tidy!

Well, you no longer need to imagine! This is the idea behind Play Street Museum Highlands Ranch!

Play Street Museum is an interactive children’s museum and indoor play area purposefully designed to encourage a young child’s sense of independence, exploration, and creativity. By narrowing the focus of the museum to the interests and imaginations of children ages 8 and under, youngsters can discover educational exhibits and activities in a world crafted just for them.

Because of the deliberate and manageable scale, children are able to self-navigate through the museum, reinforcing independence while creating a relaxed and accommodating experience for children and adults alike.

Children will have fun imagining and pretending in the miniature Town Square buildings. Here, future chefs can whip up pretend pizzas, coffees, and ice cream sundaes. Future doctors, dentists, and veterinarians can practice caring for others and their pets. Future moms and dads can pretend in their own little house. And future firefighters can ride in the little fire engine and put out a pretend fire.

There are ample opportunities to explore the many interactive exhibits and kids’ activities throughout the educational play space, where future engineers can build trains, cities, vehicles or transportation systems; or explore the effects of moving air or gravity. These are just some of the imaginative possibilities; they are endless!

Birthday parties at Play Street Museum are truly special! Every party is a private event, giving you the entire museum for just your group. With several options and themes to choose from, there’s something for everyone... from a blank canvas for you to decorate as you please, to showing up with all the food and decorations provided!

  • Option 1: “The Do-It-Yourself” parties include private use of the museum for 1½ hours, and you provide your own food and decorations.
  • Option 2: “Sweet & Simple” includes the above, plus paper goods, invitations, juice boxes or lemonade, two dozen cupcakes, ten balloons, and goodie bags containing a return visit Play Pass for each guest.
  • Option 3: “Sit Back & Relax” includes everything above, plus all the decor and food for all your guests. Play Street Museum takes care of EVERYTHING! Take a look at our themes on our website and choose your favorite!

In addition to facilitating your party — and here’s the best part — we take care of ALL the clean up! We’ll even load your car with the birthday gifts and decor.
