Habitot Children’s Museum
At Habitot, we embrace the sometimes untidy business of unstructured play by providing a safe and contained place for it. Imaginative, intimate exhibit areas allow young children to choose their own play, to decide how long or how little they will play in each area.
Exhibits are multisensory and are thoughtfully designed to encourage children to interact socially — like two steering wheels on most pretend vehicles and curvy edges on the waterplay tables so that children can be really close. The diversity of children at Habitot provides opportunities for interacting, planning together, negotiating, and for taking on and sharing roles in dramatic play, all critical skills in school and in life.
There are no rules for how to use the many loose parts. Children often take fruits and vegetables from the Little Grocery Store into the Rocketship exhibit — evidence of two-year olds planning ahead for eating on their space voyage — or to float down the River Ramp — a classic experiment in cause and effect.
