Thumbnail image for Boston Children's Museum.jpgCelebrate Boston Children’s Museum’s 100th birthday with a giant birthday party. In honor of the museum's centennial, you can make party hats and sing birthday songs. Inside the museum enjoy three floors of interactive exhibits. Outside, street performers will entertain you along the boardwalk. KidStage will feature Vento Chiaro, a world class woodwind quintet, in the morning, and original plays performed by live actors in the afternoon. And if a giant birthday party isn't enough, this date also happens to be when the museum is participating in Free Fun Fridays, so doors will be open to visitors at no charge. Be aware, though, that Free Fun Friday is the busiest day of the year for the museum. You'll want to arrive as early as possible since lines are long all day long. (But don't worry -- there is plenty to do outside while you wait!) Fri., Aug. 2, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. All ages. Free. Boston Children's Museum, 308 Congress St., Boston.

Happy 100th Birthday Boston Children's Museum! Check out photos from the past 100 years.
