Back by popular demand, the Museum of Life and Science is bringing winter fun inside with Frozen Over. Weave through an icicle forest, build an icy shelter, and even skate on a synthetic ice rink in your socks!
Composed of 800 suspended foam pool noodles, the Icicle Forest offers an immersive, sensory-rich winter experience where early childhood learners can work on developing their spatial awareness and observation skills.
Skate in Your Socks
A 400 sq. ft. synthetic ice rink surrounded by a soft bumper border encourages guests to kick off their shoes and practice their slides, twirls, and pirouettes.
Igloo Building Area
Create a custom “icy” shelter with foam blocks that are reminiscent of ice blocks. Your imagination is this igloo's only limit.
Use giant pom-pom "snowballs" for a creative game of catch or a soft sneak attack. Scheduled "snowball fights" occur daily at 11am and 4:00pm Tues - Sun.
Frozen Over also includes an area for focused, fine motor activity that is ideal for guests five and under. Young children can stack "ice" cube blocks, use colored tiles to imitate snowflake geometry, or construct a story on an over-sized felt winter scene.
