Creation Station at the Museum of Transportation

Rainy day? Too cool to play outside? A visit the Creation Station at the Museum of Transportation is a great option for such days!

There are three sessions Monday through Wednesday; 9:15 am, 10:30 am (this is the busiest session and sell out the most) and 11:45 am. On Thursday, there is an additional session at 1 pm and on the 1st and 3rd Sunday’s of the month there are sessions at 11:15 am, 12:30 pm, 1:45 pm and 3 pm.

We typically attend the first session starting at 9:15 am as this time doesn’t usually sell out. (Artive at 9 am and get tickets as soon as they open)

There is a board near the entrance that shows sold out sessions, so I suggest driving around the circle before parking to avoid a major meltdown from the kids. (Not a pretty sight; it’s been us before)

When your session begins you will be greeted by Linda, the woman who runs the run. She is a very nice woman who loves to chat.

The walls of the Creation Station are covered in an amazing mural! It makes the whole atmosphere so cheery!

There are activities galore here!!! Train tables, kitchen play area, book corner, and craft and coloring areas just to name a few.

There is a yellow bus that children can use for climbing and sliding.

Additionally there is a play house, puppet show stage, dress up area and a post office play area.

And don’t forget the musical instruments and baby play area!

We love pairing a visit to the Creation Station with a ride on the miniature train afterwards! All in all, a great option to take kids of all ages!
