Spring Break kicks off in a little over a week. Thankfully, the Children’s Museum of Richmond’s Central location has plenty of fun and educational activities lined up to keep those kiddos busy.
Richmond area public school kids’ Spring Break runs April 14th through 19th, and the Children’s Museum of Richmond‘s Central location is ready to welcome the little rug rats with open arms.
With special events scheduled for each day of the break, you’re sure to find something to suit your kids’ respective fancies–and they should learn a thing or two while they’re busy having fun.
