Stamford Museum & Nature Center, Stamford, CT

in Museums, Parks/Outdoor, Party Venues

This is several venues in one!  Check out the different visiting exhibitions in the Museum. This always includes a child-friendly hands-on activity. Then tour Heckscher Farm– ask for The Heckscher Farm Activity Guide & Scavenger Hunt booklet. Then stop by for a visit at Animal Embassy, an independent venture that rescues exotic pets. Maybe you’ll stumble upon lunch time for the giant turtles when they amble between your feet to eat off the vegetable plate that the caretakers set on the floor for them. Or maybe you’ll be able to hold a snake or chinchilla! And don’t miss the amazing playground. That’s a great place for mom to bring a book for a long read while kids play!
