After much anticipation the North Carolina Museum of Life and Science has opened its latest attraction, Hide Away Woods. This new addition includes two acres of tree houses, rope bridges, slides and a fresh water stream for kids to explore all nature has to offer. It also includes a stick structure forest designed by local artist Patrick Doughterty that is perfect for a game of hide and seek.
This new exhibit is great for kids of all ages! From a section for “young explorers” (ages 6 and under) to the 20 feet tall tree house towers for the older more adventurous kids. Make sure to bring a change of clothes this outdoor playscape is designed for kids to get dirty and wet. Luckily the NCMLS has included a roomy bathroom/changing area nearby to help keep your day at the museum enjoyable.
