Boston Children’s Museum
308 Congress St., Boston
The three-story play structure in the lobby is a great place to burn off some energy on rainy days, and the Bubbles exhibit is a perennial favorite. Visit Arthur’s World, experiment with motion at the Raceways exhibit and don’t forget to stop by the Japanese House. The museum celebrates its 100th birthday this year, with many special events planned.
