Our Kids Didn't Want To Leave

Brandon's Own Galactic Playgrounds Science Center

By Ileana Lazala May 27, 2021

We had the awesome opportunity to spend a couple of hours at Galactic Playgrounds in Brandon.  Two hours wasn't quite enough for our kids and they made us promise to go back soon.  They didn't even realize all of the learning that was taking place as they moved freely from station to station.  

As parents, we know it's not always easy to find great things for kids to stay busy, stay cool, stay curious and have fun. This beautiful indoor facility has all of that and more. We got to sit in one of the glowing rooms and be entertained with awesome music and projected images that made you feel like you were flying in the mountains.  We got to meet the owner and he was so welcoming and made sure the kids understood the stations and how to use them.  

We highly recommend you plan a trip to check this place out.  Your kids will love it...and so will you.  

Exhibits are powered by children so they get exercise while becoming curious about how things work.

They have also created one of the SAFEST places to play.  Their COVID protection actions include:
  • NEW HVAC; 500% more outside air than standard units - the closest thing to being outdoors!!
  • Over 8,500sf facility for easy social distancing.
  • Occupancy limit of 10% weekdays & 25% weekends!!

Let's help spread the word about this amazing family-owned business in our community!
