The Best Things to Do with Kids in Evansville
While it’s often nice to relax at home and watch a movie or romp in the yard, everyone appreciates getting out of the house and having an adventure. The best part? There’s no need to plan an overnight trip because you can take your kids, your nieces and nephews or other favorite little ones to plenty of great spots right here in Evansville.
Get your children excited about the natural world with one of the many activities and programs organized by the Wesselman Nature Society. The woods preserve, consisting of old-growth lowland forest, has been designated a National Natural Landmark. Admission is free, although donations are welcomed.
You’ll enter this unique urban forest through the Wesselman Woods Nature Center, filled with hands-on educational exhibits and friendly staff members to answer questions. Then it’s into the unspoiled forest to enjoy its native bird and wildlife species, hundred-foot-tall trees and grassy meadows.
If you want you and your kids to be more active, Swonder’s indoor ice rink is the place for you. Whether you sign up for lessons, join a hockey league or just go for open skate sessions, there’s something for everyone at this fun-filled arena. Camp Swonder offers day camps all summer, giving Mom and Dad a bit of quiet time at home before picking up tired, happy kids for dinner.
This area gem, affectionately known as cMoe, has hands-on, interactive exhibits for kids of all ages. Join your children in building things and taking them apart, dramatizing a story, playing musical instruments and much more. The Wet Deck is always a favorite and an aptly named one—so bring a change of clothes.
The third floor has a place to break for lunch, as well as event rooms for workshops, demonstrations and even private parties. Summer camps at the museum invite children to explore science and art while feeding their imagination. Your kids will definitely want to visit cMoe multiple times.
