What travelers say:

The Boston Children's Museum, founded in 1913, is the second oldest museum in the United States. The 1888 wool warehouse on Capitol Street in Boston, USA, is now home to the Boston Children's Museum. In this museum, children can walk up to a huge desk with five-foot pencils and two-foot paper clips; they can climb up to a three-story building, a cut-off surface that has been “dissected”; they learn to broadcast television news; Take off their shoes and walk into a authentic Japanese home that includes kitchens, bathrooms and gardens; they try to use prosthetics, wheelchairs and blind typewriters; they collect money at the exits of supermarkets, and so on. The children's dreams come true here.
