My busy crew did Kidsville inside the Parthenon in downtown Nashville's Centennial Park.
WHO: Mom Reporter Kristi and kids Wesley (3), Audrey (8) and Cobyn (10)
WHAT: Kidsville at The Parthenon, 2500 West End Ave., Nashville
WHEN: Most Saturdays from 11 – 11:45 a.m.
With summer nearing its end we have been running out of clever ideas to keep the kids from boredom, or at least peel them away from the video games for a bit. We decided to spend Saturday morning at Kidsville at The Parthenon in Centennial Park.
Kidsville is made up of a storytime, crafts and educational activities for what they say is aimed at children roughly 2 – 12 years old. This is a free event located inside the museum at the park which also offers free parking. This event is very short at only 45 minutes, but you are free to browse the museum at your leisure after or play at the park.
Kidsville is not offered every Saturday so be sure to check the website before you attend. If you visit The Parthenon on a regular day you can expect to pay $6 per adult and $4 for children 5 and older, which makes this event worth it just for the free admission! Be sure to get there around 30 minutes prior to start time so you can register and find yourself a good spot for storytime. If you have young children, I recommend not bringing a stroller to this one because it can tend to get busy in the small space, and it makes it easier to have the option of taking the stairs.
