ST. TAMMANY PARISH, LA - The Children's Museum of St. Tammany is the place for children to explore an interactive educational environment and to discover learning by playing, as well as to imagine and create artistic works.

While many visitors are looking forward to the museum's science quests and seasonal events, it's their exhibit galleries that keep children inspired and eager to learn.

How & Why Gallery is the center of the museum's Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) curriculum. It's designed to help children aged 2-10 discover STEM principles, solve problems through simulation, and draw connections between science and everyday life.

In the gallery, children can learn about the laws of physics through Roller Coaster, think three-dimensionally while building Rigamajig, or simply get mesmerized by the iconic 6-foot globe.

For those who prefer physical activity, Great Tammany Oak Gallery might be their forte. Through climbing the oak wall, children aged 3-10 years will sharpen their kinesthetic sense and get used to goal-setting and risk-taking.

ARTworks Gallery is where children get creative and explore their imagination. The studio is packed with paint, modeling clay, oil, pastels, music, and theater. Kids can perform dances or tune in for storytime at Nautilus Stage, a low platform set as a staging area inside the gallery.

Last but not least, Little Lake Tots Gallery provides a lighthouse and a boat for toddlers to safely play and explore. Inspired by Lake Pontchartrain, children can roleplay as fishermen or boat captains. The lighthouse is also the perfect place to read a book or work on a puzzle with family or new friends.

The Children's Museum of St. Tammany is located at 21404 Koop Driver, Mandeville, LA 70479, and it operates Tuesday-Friday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
