Looking for a way to get the kids out of the house? You need to head over to C’mon: The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples. C’mon features two floors of hands-on exploration and fun where kids can hide in a treehouse, shop in a grocery store, fish in a river, run through a maze and so much more! It is truly an amazing experience for the kids (and even the parents). If you are looking for things to do in Naples FL with the kids, put this at the top of your list!
C’mon completely surpassed my expectations! There were so many things to do that the kids loved. Check out our video of some of the things we did during our visit…
Here were a few of our favorite exhibits…
The water play area was outside in the back of the museum. It was a really big area with pulley systems, boats, and more.
The Seasons rooms
This was our favorite part! There was a room for fall, winter, and one for spring. It was so neat! The winter room had an igloo and when you went into the igloo it was cold. The fall room had a big tree and the kids could rake up pretend colored leaves. Once they put the leaves in a pile, they put them in the big tree and pressed a button and the leaves shot up through the trunk of the tree and then fell down from the top of the tree. It made it look like leaves were falling in the fall. It was so cool!
They also had a spring room where they had a big nest and the kids could dress up like an eagle and pretend to sit in the nest with the eggs. There were also pretend baby birds the kids could feed. They loved it.
These rooms were so great for my Florida kids to experience different climates and seasons in a hands-on, fun way.
The Tree House
The tree House was so neat! The kids could climb up the tree (through a safe climbing area!) to the tree house and play. In the tree house there was a pretend veterinarian office where the kids could dress up and help sick pets (AKA stuffed animals). It was so cute and it was Maggie’s favorite part! She wants to be a vet when she grows up so this is where she spent most of her time.
The fishing pond
Charlie could have fished for these pretend fish all day. The pond circulates and the kids can fish with magnetic fishing poles. Very fun!
In the back of the museum was a whole outside area with chalk, climbing blocks and a maze!
