PHOENIX — The Children's Museum of Phoenix is open but if you go, you won't be inside.

Instead, there are over 20,000 square feet of Adventure Play outside.

The museum is a place where kids from roughly one-years-old to about 10-years-old can experience and stimulate their senses within a playing environment.

"Adventure Play is the museum outside," says visitor manager Ernst Munoz. "Hammers and saws and building with recyclable materials," he adds.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, the museum temporarily closed earlier this year and they've been slowly reopening.

Adventure Play was fully open at the end of November.

"We've built exhibits all along the front yard and our front parking lot, it's been amazing," Munoz says.

At Adventure Play, there is a mud and straw climbing castle, coloring, painting, and of course simply playing. All of this, according to Munoz, being done safely and with Covid-19 precautions at the forefront.

"Our tickets are now capacity so we have scheduled throughout the day so that our guests come at specific times so that they always feel comfortable being in their own space versus a crowded area."

Adventure Play is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. At this time, they will remain open in this fashion until April of 2021.
