Water Ways Exhibit - Providence Children's Museum

An entirely renovated, reimagined Water Ways environment will transform Providence Children’s Museum with torrents of fun this fall!

Visitors of all ages will splash, explore and discover imaginative all-new water play:

  • Transform the size and shape of billowing mist and water domes 
  • Send objects spiraling and twisting through vortexes 
  • Connect pipe pieces to form fountains that funnel the flow of mist and water 
  • Investigate and sculpt crushed ice using a variety of tools 
  • “Paint” watery designs on a large slate wall 
  • Explore an expanded toddler play area with balls, ramps and spigots
  • And MUCH more!

The exhibit closes for renovations on September 2 and the brand-new environment will open in November. Visit the Museum’s blog for stories and photos of reinventing Water Ways!
