Are you ready to dive into some serious fun right here in Rochester, NY? Whether you're visiting or you're lucky enough to call this vibrant city home, we've got a whole weekend of joy and discovery waiting for you and the kids.

Hands-On Fun That Ticks All the Boxes

Let's start with a place where the phrase "please touch" might as well be on the front door. The Strong National Museum of Play isn’t just any museum—it’s a playground of historical and contemporary toys where your kids can meet Sesame Street characters, hang out with the Berenstain Bears, or leap into a life-size comic book. It’s a whirl of fun with something to tickle the fancy of every little visitor.

Craving more? The Rochester Museum & Science Center(RMSC) is your next stop. With over 200 interactive exhibits, everyone in the family gets to tinker, explore, and maybe even learn a thing or two without even realizing it! Don’t miss out on the star-gazing sessions at the Strasenburgh Planetarium or a nature hike at the Cumming Nature Center.

And for a dash of creativity, swing by the George Eastman Museum where the kiddos can explore early photography with hands-on activities that are perfect for little fingers and curious minds.

Step Back in Time

Ready for a blast from the past? The Genesee Country Village & Museum takes you straight back to the 19th century. Try your hand at old-fashioned laundry (way harder than it sounds!), craft making, or join a game of vintage baseball. It's history come to life in the most engaging way possible!

If your little ones are all about big machines, the Rochester and Genesee Valley Railroad Museum along with the New York Museum of Transportationare must-visits. Hop on a vintage train, or explore fascinating displays of historical transport.

Outdoor Adventures

Rochester's park system is nothing short of impressive. Grab those bikes or rollerblades and hit the scenic trails along the Erie Canal. If water's more your style, paddle the day away with kayaks or canoes. And, of course, no outdoor day is complete without a visit to the Seneca Park Zoo, where wildlife from around the globe awaits.

Splash and Play

What’s summer without some water fun? Seabreeze Amusement Park offers thrills with rides like the Whirlwind and the historic Jack Rabbit roller coaster. For a wetter adventure, Roseland Waterpark in Canandaigua has everyone covered—from toddler-friendly zones to adrenaline-pumping water slides.

Seasonal Celebrations

If you’re here in May, don’t miss the fragrant beauty of the Lilac Festival. Come autumn, the local farms offer pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and cute farm animals—perfect for little explorers.
