The Children Museum is the place for kids to learn about different professions in a super joyful way, with 22 professions to discover. The venue is designed for the ages of 2-8 years old. One rainy day (a statutory holiday) we visited this place and the kids had lots of fun. The kids enjoyed 3 hours in the museum, exploring each station and enjoyed two funny shows from the nice staff. Good for rainy/snowy days.
