Our building wall allows you and your child to make an obstacle course and watch colorful plastic balls travel through.

Doctor’s office: Dress up like a doctor and look at our X-ray machine to see how your bones look, if you have a fracture or a broken bone we have just what you need, children’s crutches, slings, and a wheelchair. We have expanded our exhibit to have an infant area. Allow children to do check ups on dolls, and care for them by giving them a bath, rocking them in a bassinette or examining them at the doctor’s office.

Dentist's office: Have “patients” sit in our dentist chair while you look at X-rays of teeth! Learn fun facts about teeth while dressing up in a uniform that represents a dentist and or dental hygienist.

Come visit a village inside APCM where children can explore and grow!

Amelia’s Café: Everyone loves to play house, especially in our kitchen! Amelia’s café mirrors a real life style kitchen where your children can use their imagination to play “restaurant” where they cook and serve food.

Big Y: Our Big Y exhibit exemplifies a real grocery store allowing children to use grocery carts to shop and purchase play food. A scanner and cash register makes it feel like a real store especially when children dress up in our Big Y aprons. This exhibit also demonstrates food groups, and serves as a hands on resource for nutrition. (We are working on updating our Big Y exhibit so please excuse our appearance during this time.)

Berkshire Bank: Americas Most Exciting Bank has come to Amelia Park Children’s Museum. Children cause genitive skills while memorizing the code to get into the vault or can learn about money playing “money memory ,” or one of the other fun games found in our Berkshire Bank.

The Wild Side of APCM

We have animals that are fun to watch as well as learn about, our animals include:

Norman the Silkie Guinea Pig

  • The Silkie guinea pig, also known as the Sheltie guinea pig, is one of the newest breeds of guinea pigs. Guinea pigs need plenty of exercise and they also love to play, you’ll often find Norman joining us behind the front desk for play time!  Guinea pigs are herbivores and need fruits, vegetables, and grains in their diet. Native to the Andes mountains Guinea Pigs were a surprisingly big hit with the rich back in England with Elizabeth the First being an early European Guinea pig owner!

Houdini the eastern box turtle:

  • Box turtles can live to be over a hundred years old! Box turtles have soft shell until the age of 7 years, during this time they’re much faster and can hunt their food. After 7 they tend to eat more vegetables and spend more time basking in the sun than in the water.

Cornelia the corn snake

  • Corn Snakes eat mice and small rodents. They will eat only a couple times a month! Like all snakes, corn snakes, shed their skin when they out grow it or if it becomes injured. Corn Snakes are named after the corn like pattern on their skin and because they were found in corn piles chasing mice.

Sebastian the leopard gecko

  • Has a knob on its tail that looks like a head to confuse predators, uses its unique spots to blend in and hide, from the deserts of Eastern Asia.

Meet Desi - Beaded Dragon

Gandalf the Bearded Dragon

  • He’s nearly 10 years old !! He has spines on his back for protection and for impressing fellow bearded dragons. He eats insects as well as fruits and vegetables and enjoys basking in the sun to keep his cold blooded temperature up. Bearded dragons live natively among the rocks and sand of Australia.

Keep watch for new animals to come!
