Coming This Fall: A Whole New Water Ways!

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!

After 16 years and more than 2 million visitors, Water Ways closes for renovations on September 2 and the brand-new space opens November 8.  Stay tuned for stories and photos of reinventing Water Ways!
