Unleash Your Inner Child During This Exhibit Featuring Huge Treehouses and Rope Bridges

Get ready to see nature in a whole new light at the latest exhibit at the Museum of Life and Science! Hideaway Woods is a two-acre, nature discovery environment featuring treehouses, a flowing streambed, and fanciful nature sculptures. Come see it for yourself this Saturday, July 27th beginning at 10:00 a.m.

Connected by rope bridges, each of the eight handcrafted treehouses featured in Hideaway Woods offers a unique vantage point that changes with the seasons. Find your favorite way up using ladders, cargo nets, staircases, and an accessible gangway. Two slides offer a unique way back down!

You may also wade in an accessible, recirculating freshwater stream for a cooling exploration of how water interacts and behaves with other elements in nature. Grab a pine cone or a giant leaf and see how the current impacts your boat’s journey! What impact will your hand have on the flow of a mini waterfall? This play zone includes an accessible patio near the waterfall area.

Additionally, a scaled set of “mini” treehouses offers the perfect place for guests ages 0-6 to begin their nature adventure. Explore a small hillside slide, climb inside a giant log, or have a woodland dinner party in our nature-based imaginative play area. A dedicated stroller parking area, seating, and a separate fence make keeping an eye on your young explorer easier than ever.

Why visit Hideaway Woods? Play in naturalized, outdoor environments can foster deeper social, physical, and emotional developments in children (and adults!). The dynamic mix of full-body movement, imaginative play, and opportunities to notice or observe, provides endless opportunities to exercise our mental and physical capabilities.
