Imaginative children will beg to stay longer -- and even longer still! -- at the Stockton Children's Museum. Climbing, exploring and hands-on play is entirely encouraged throughout this 22,000 square foot facility. Play areas include a bank, post office, doctor office and grocery store; a firetruck, police car, ambulance and helicopter; art studio for painting and creating; and a news desk where children can be the star of their own broadcast.
Pack a lunch and picnic outside at the playground, then return inside for more kid-centric fun!

Worth the drive from Modesto, Turlock, etc. and the $5 per person admission fee. My just turned 2 year old loved the place. She was running from area to area sitting in a donated helicopter, police car, fire truck, city bus, mock supermarket, mock veterinary clinic, etc.
I recommend taking your kids to poop them out for a great nap, run off some energy, and get some hands on experiences.
I did not see a snack...more

Loved it! Had to drag my kids out because I was tired. They would have continued to closing if I'd let them. They really liked the store and the firetruck.
