"Fun with the Family"

Kids love exploring closets and attics, and they’re welcome to snoop around in the fourteen rooms of the Quaint Corner Children’s Museum. Peek in the International Closet or the Amish Closet, the Medical Room, or Pirate Treasure Closet.
The Quaint Corner Children’s Museum was designed as a place for families toexplore together, promoting creative hands-on learning and an appreciation for art,history, and science. The house itself is charming with its stained-glass windows and fine woodwork. Children love the craft room, dress-up clothes, and the sandbox in the basement. There’s even a player piano in the gift shop. The bathroom, like the house, is old, with no changing or wheelchair facilities. The annual Quaint Corner Children’s Fair comes in mid-August with puppet shows, games, and food.
