Marbles Kids Museum

Raleigh, NC 27601



Marbles Kids Museum opened our doors on September 29, 2007 to kids and kids-at-heart! The crowd was wowed when we unveiled our new name and new exhibits after a suspenseful 24-day transformation that followed the merger of Exploris and Playspace. Opening Day was a super sensation. Why Marbles? A wall that wraps around the museum is filled with more than one million marbles that light up at night. And Marbles is a nickname for brains. At Marbles Kids Museum, kids are encouraged to use their marbles - learning new things through imagination, discovery and play.
