Columbus Museum

With the colder weather in The Valley, our kids are spending less time outdoors and more time inside. Let’s be honest here—we’re all tired of being cooped up in the house. You may be moreover it than the kids! Trying to be their number one source of entertainment day after day gets old; we can only make so many crafts and bake so much before we are all over it. So we’ve compiled a list of indoor play places. You may have forgotten these places exist!
