• New at McKenna Children’s Museum: Water table and mural

    The Mckenna Children’s Museum outdoor area just got an upgrade, and it’s a sight to behold.

    Featuring the McKenna Foundation’s hands logo and incorporating several key attractions, the museum now boasts a mural that captures the essence of fun at the museum.

    Local artist, Johnny Duncan, known for his citywide murals including one at Scoop Street Craft Ice Cream downtown, completed the vibrant piece in early June. It was unveiled just in time to coincide with the introduction of our second latest feature, a brand-new water table.


    The museum recently introduced the interactive water table, complete with a Gruene water tower, a tube shoot, and a spot to go fishing. Needless to say, the addition has quickly become a favorite among visitors.

    Whether it’s a field trip, family outing, or just an escape from the sun, join us for fun and come explore our new attractions!

    The Children’s Museum welcomes visitors  Monday to Saturday, 9 am – 4 pm. 

    Tickets are available for walk-ins or online.
