We kindly request that you save the backyard garden play for last as the back door remains locked for safety…
Upon exiting the garden gate, please walk around to the front for re-entry if you still have some play left inside you!
There’s a walkway between the playhouse and Vintage that will lead you to our front door on Main St.
The policy of the playhouse includes two general rules.
1. Grown-ups are responsible for and stay in the same area as their child(ren).
2. Before moving to the next room, please encourage your kids to help restore the area and leave it ready for the next friend to play.
*The Original Playhouse strongly encourages a maximum ratio of 3 children per 1 adult so that grown-ups can better facilitate children’s room-choice preferences, and to more easily respect the policies of the playhouse. Children are not permitted to wander the museum on their own.
**The Original Playhouse targets children ages 3-9 as the activities are most appropriate for this developmental range. Toddlers are welcome to play too; however, parents need to be extra watchful in the water room and around the stairs. There are toys that aren’t designed or safe for children under three. For these reasons, bringing a baby can often result in an unpleasant experience Children older than 9 are certainly invited as we believe you’re never too old to play!
