Overview
More
The Little Buckeye Children's Museum is a hands-on children's museum located in downtown Mansfield. With many different exhibits, the Little Buckeye is an ideal location for group and family visits by children ages 2-12 years. We understand that exploration and play are critical to child development, imagination, and creativity. We know that play benefits children socially, emotionally, and intellectually! At Little Buckeye, we know that not every child gets the opportunity to play in a safe and creative environment. Little Buckeye Children's Museum provides that opportunity. Our museum features exhibits in the arts, sciences, transportation, and imagination play. You can: shop for groceries in the Little Market, learn in the science lab, perform on stage, have fun in the bank, discover in the tree house, get wet in our Water Table, play auto mechanic at Little Buckeye Auto Repair and much more

Two floors of different themed areas for the kids. My kids had such a great time they did not want to leave. The only complaint we had was finding somewhere to park. Other than that, kids had a great time.
