Satisfy your little one's curiosity for cars and trucks and things that go at the Providence Children's Museum! Their special series, "Wheels at Work," rolls into town this week and stays for the summer. Each week a different vehicle is featured and kids are encouraged to climb aboard, meet the workers who operate each one, and learn exactly what the vehicle does. This Wednesday, kids can climb aboard a giant tow truck from AAA Southern New England, and learn how its operators rescue broken cars. After the program, head over to the Imagination Playground and use foam blocks, wheels, tubes and spools to create your own moving vehicles! Wednesday, July 11. "Wheels at Work" runs from 10 a.m. - noon. The Imagination Playground is open from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Free with Museum admission. $8.50 per person; under 12 months and members, free. Providence Children's Museum, 100 South Street, Providence, RI. www.childrenmuseum.org
