The Thinkery, the new Austin Children’s Museum, creates innovative learning experiences that equip and inspire the next generation of creative problem solvers. It opened in December 2013 at its new location in the Mueller development, the Thinkery is Austin’s new home for “why” and “how”. It’s a place where science and families play side by side. Founded in 1983 as a nonprofit organization, the Thinkery delivers its mission through a variety of exhibits, programs and outreach activities that focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM).

We are so lucky to have such an awesome children's museum in Austin! From their enormous train table, slide, toddler area, play kitchen, train station, wonderful story times and sing alongs, and always a wonderful main exhibit, there's always something for everyone! Parking can be a little tricky, but it is downtown!
