General Info
Thinkery is Austin’s home for “why” and “how.” A place where science and families play side by side. Where people connect with ideas by doing, making and experiencing. It’s a foundry for a new generation of innovators and creative problem solvers. And it’s a heck of a good time.

Worth the membership!

My two and four year olds love the Thinkery! Favorite areas are the water stations, climbing outside and paint station! Don't forget to bring food as they only have vending machines w snacks! There is a great park across the street as well. The 'gift store' has some unique, educational toys/games that I like too!

We love the children's museum! There is a variety of things to do for all ages. We love the baby/toddler area for the baby and my preschooler loves the market and water areas! You can easily spend all day here!

The Best Kid Museum in Austin.
By on March 16, 2017
This is an interactive children’s museum. My kids love the playground, light lab, paint area and fresh farmers market. 8 year olds will love Space 8 the Maker Lab. You can drop your 8 year old off to learn and take your little one to an area for smaller children. Space is limited. See my full review here. http://www.austinmogger.com/2016/09/the-thinkery-mueller-lake-park.html

Live Grow Play Austin-approved!
By on March 1, 2017
The Thinkery is perfect for little and big explorers. There really is something to do for every age. Even for adults. From time to time they have adult nights that allow you to be a kid again. Plus, we bet there are tons of things that you a) didn't know, or b) have heard of decades ago but wouldn't be able to explain to your child right now. Our kids LOVE to climb on the playscape in the backyard. The Light Lab, especially the colorful peg board or giant Lite-Brite if you will, is also a favorite. The Spark Shop, where kids can build and launch gliders or make a model flyers, is also a lot of fun. The girls also love to buy vegetables and fruits at "the farmers market" and then cook up a delicious meal for us. And then there is the Splash Zone with lots of cool hands-on water features that allow kids to explore the concepts of fluid dynamics and to discover the connections between water and sound. But, there's so much more. If you live close, it's definitely worth a membership. The Thinkery is 100% Live Grow Play Austin-approved!
