La Habra’s Famous Children’s Museum

0 Comment

img_1732-smallThe community of La Habra located in northern Orange County is well known for the Children’s Museum a fun place for kids of all ages.

Complete with a merry-go-round (which runs every 1/2 hour) it’s a totally hands-on it’s also a place for youngsters to learn valuable life lessons in the Ocean Adventures on things like ecology with an under the sea exhibit.  Check out the archeology exhibit by digging for fossils and discovering burried “bones”, is another adventure.


In another exhibit there’s real live performing stage, kids dress up in a wide variety of costumes complete with hats and accessories. The scenery on the “stage” takes on a different appearance for all to see with budding set/directors at the controls in the nearby lighting booth. I’ve watched kids can spend an hour(including my own grand kids) in this one exhibit alone. And remembering youngest visitors, kids five and under, there’s a special room of exhibits just for this special age group. They can play with multiple fun things available for just the little ones. The nearby train caboose (still on the tracks, right next door to the Depot Theater) offers a look back to earlier days of the railroad coming from Los Angeles into Orange County including stops at La Habra and ending in Yorba Linda. This exhibit is open at selected time for museum. I can tell you personally the kids crawl into almost every nook and cranny of this rail car.
