Pretend City Children’s Museum

Pretend City Museum provides children with access to a city that’s all their own!  

Through hands-on experiences children learn foundational concepts while pursing curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, and team work. It’s here that they can run a UPS Store and deliver packages, grocery shop at Trader Joes, play dentist and doctor in the medical center, fish and race boats in the marina, change spark plugs on a race car, run a restaurant, work on a farm, rescue a house on fire, and build structures of all shapes and sizes; all while being exposed to cultures, religions, and lifestyles different from their own.

Additional programs include: Family Autism Night, Free Developmental Screenings, Birthday Party Packages.

Visit the calendar on their website for upcoming special events and classes.



Venture to Pretend City this summer for Dinos in The City! Explore engaging interactives with life-like animatronic dinosaurs and exciting educational content.

The STEAM Lab will bring children back to the ice age through predicting and problem-solving hands-on activities. A Night at the Museum series will invite guests to enjoy dinosaur-themed movies, scavenger hunts and nighttime discovery with resident dino friends!
