Moments that Matter

If you have kids, nieces & nephews, or just really love Stepnotes, then you know how important Marbles Kid Museum is to the Raleigh community and beyond. 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.

This year marks 10 years of FUNdamental Play at Marbles. 10 years of moments that matter for 5 million guests and counting. Join us in preparing the way for a new decade of play!
