We have begun working with Cox & Co to create “Dream Boards.” Dream Boards are our dreams of what the Baraboo Children’s Museum will look like once we have the space and support needed to open in a larger facility. We would love to have your input into this process as we work to build the next phase of the Baraboo Children’s Museum.
Our desire is that our future space will allow for expansion of exhibits on top of our planned art, music, and theater exhibits. It is our desire that this expanded space will also allow for physical activities to get kids out of the house and shake the winter blues away.
Our train room hopes to feature Thomas and Friends train tables, working crossing signal (lights and arm), interactive controls, hand crank to turn wheels, and seating as children get to sit at the controls and learn about how trains run.
Our “Down on the Farm” exhibit plans to have milkable cows, chickens to gather eggs from, hand rank conveyor belt to load hay into the silo, and a garden to be planted and harvested. We hope this exhibit space will also allow gross motor skill options like pedal tractors and climbing apparatus.
Side Note: How cool would it be to feature local agricultural options like bee keeping, cranberries, and maple syrup?
Come see a small scale version on this exhibit in our Pop-Up Shop through the month of December.

Our Fresh Mart it set to feature a hand crank conveyor belt, working cash registers, shopping carts, and restaurant store front.
Side Note: How cool would it be to feature local stores and restaurants as build on our community’s rich culture.

We have such a wonderful city with such rich culture and history! Celebrating the circus is one way we can celebrate the things that make Baraboo the greatest place on Earth. Our circus exhibit will include carnival mirrors, dress up costumes, circus skill apparatus, history, and photo-ops for children of all ages.
