Burton Henry Upjohn Children's Landscape is a self-directed play area designed to promote parent and child interaction in an educational environment. The hands-on exhibits and classroom programs are filled with age-appropriate interactives for children ages 2-5 years old. All hands-on activities and teacher-led programs are free of charge and themes change bi-monthly. Children older than five may participate only if accompanying a preschool buddy, with the expectation that their play be appropriate to preschool surroundings.

Saturday: 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
