For Kids

Greater Raleigh prides itself on being a family-friendly destination, with a wealth of museums, festivals, live performances, parks and lakes that are fun for everyone. From hands-on exhibits at Marbles Kids Museum and larger-than-life movies at Wells Fargo IMAX Theatre to the historic carousel and train at Pullen Park, the Raleigh area offers family attractions and activities for kids of all ages.

Active families can enjoy year-round outdoor recreation in North Carolina's state capital area, and we bet you’ll even learn a little while you’re here. Discover the wonder of the natural world at the Nature Research Center (a wing at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences), or better understand the past at one of the area’s historic sites like Historic Yates Mill County Park... kids can be Lifelong Learners, too!

Your kids may never want to go home, and surely will want to come back again and again! Parents will love how children's imaginations are sparked... and that many of the area's top attractions are free!
