Spring Break means something way different once you have kids. But fear not, parents: Children’s Museum of Richmond is ready to pack those days (and days and days) with plenty of quality fun.

Spring Break kicks off for Richmond-area public school kids a week from today–a fact that has many local parents tugging nervously at their collars as they stare at the number of days stretching before them and their little poppets.1

But fear not, Mom and Pop! The Children’s Museum of Richmond has all kinds of good stuff in the works throughout the entire week of Spring Break. You’re sure to find something to suit your family’s various fancies.

FYI: activities vary location to location, so read up before you head out!

Monday, March 28th: Magic Day

Magic shows and face painting will be going DOWN at all Richmond-area locations–and Seymour will pop into the Central location for a little visit just before lunch.

Tuesday, March 29th: Animal Day

Hands-on, educator-led nature activities, visits from Rockwood Nature Center and the Virginia Living Museum, and more! And more magic shows because sure!

Wednesday, March 30th: Music and Art Day

Again with the magic shows (I’m sure they are art to many, many people out there), as well as educator-led music and art activities.

Thursday, March 31st: Throwback Thursday

Special, history-themed story times and an old-timey game or two. They’re planning a couple of magic shows for Thursday, too. Perhaps they’ll also be old-timey?

Friday, April 1st: Sports Day

CMoR Central will host Richmond Kickers, the Flying Squirrels, and Nutzy, but at CMoR Chesterfield your kids will have the chance to explore the basics of martial arts through workshops from Dong’s Karate. And more magic shows.2

Saturday, April 2nd: Robotics Day

It’s all about the Central location come Saturday with robot obstacle courses, circuit-building, and make-your-own robot activities.3

  1. Maybe that’s just me. Don’t get me wrong: I love spending time with my kid. I always forget when Spring Break is coming up, and then my son and I spend the first two days just sort of staring at each other. 
  2. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 
  3. NO MAGIC SHOWS ON SATURDAY. You’ve had enough!
