Gift them exploration, discovery and play

Though it might not take up much space under the Christmas tree, a membership with the Bucks County Children’s Museum is the perfect gift for your littlest explorers. A membership provides free and unlimited admission to the museum, as well as discounts on birthday parties, the museum store and reduced rates on selected special programs. Want to give a gift certificate instead? The museum offers several options to fit your budget.

All aboard! Take them on a old fashioned train ride

Got a train enthusiast? The New Hope Railroad provides a glimpse into the travel of a bygone era on historic trains traveling over tracks that were laid more than a century ago. Relive the golden age of rail travel and take a front-row seat of an antique carriage pulled by a steam locomotive as you take in the passing scenery of streams, scenic farmland, historic buildings, bridges and surroundings.
