Marbles Kids Museum opened in 2007 as a vibrant destination for hands-on, minds-on learning for children and families. Located in the heart of downtown Raleigh, Marbles serves a diverse population of families, school groups and community organizations with dozens of themed exhibits, daily programs, summer camps, IMAX educational and feature films and special events year-round. Museum programs and exhibits are designed for children 10-and-under. Today, Marbles ranks among the top family destinations in North Carolina and is recognized nationally for a bold approach to play-based learning. At Marbles, we believe in play as a foundation for academic success and emotional well-being, as a way to strengthen families and as a tool to build community. We believe strongly in our responsibility to make our unique museum experience available and accessible to ALL children.
