• Make an Appointment to Play!

    After several months of renovations, The Children’s Playhouse reopened to the public Tuesdays-Saturdays on August 17, 2021. For your safety, we will be requiring play reservations with time slots starting at 9:30, 11:30, 1:30, and 3:30. Please use the buttons below. If you have difficulty using the form, call 828-263-0011 and we can help you. Sometimes we get last minute cancellations and might be able to slip you in.

    With our updated knowledge of the virus and resulting safety recommendations we will be requiring masks for all adults and children aged two and up. If you would like tips and encouragement for helping your child wear a mask, please watch this helpful video from Riley Children’s Hospital. https://www.childrensmuseum.org/tips-for-wearing-a-mask.

    Here is an original social story, Wearing a Mask at The Children’s Playhouse, written by Jana Duke that you can download and share with your child. Reading it together before you visit will help your child know what to expect. At the end of the book, you can add a photo or a drawing of your child wearing their mask at The Playhouse.

    The past year has been stressful for everyone, especially for children who need time to play, explore, and discover in order to stay mentally and physically healthy. With this in mind, we have spruced up the Playhouse and added exciting new exhibits to allow our children and adults the most joy filled play experience we can offer. It’s been hard to be closed so long but we hope you’ll find it worth the wait!
