“Wegmans Wonderplace welcomes curious kids ages 0–6 and their grownups to exercise their imaginations, wiggle their bodies, and explore with their hands”. Whether you’re a D.C. local like me or a visitor to the nation’s capital if you’re in D.C. with little ones this is a great place to entertain them and help them get some energy out! It’s a great break for little ones stuck in stroller site seeing all day or another fun indoor play room for local’s to use.
My one year old loved climbing the stairs, going down the slide, checking out the fruit and veggie stands, playing in the kitchen and store, driving the boat, and playing with the magnetic gear wall. I can see this place becoming even more exciting for him as he continues to grow. Some nice features on top of all of the awesome play spaces are the reading corner with boppy’s where you can nurse little ones, a crawling zone for littler babies, and a bathroom equipped with a kids toilet and changing table.

If you’re down on the national mall with a member of the under 6 crowd be sure to check this place out! Older siblings will also like the activity room next door on top of all of the other great museum exhibits.
