Finding places to explore with young kids can be especially challenging, especially in the colder months or on those stormy summer days. Despite troublesome weather conditions, children often keep their energy up! Thankfully, Fargo has a variety of indoor play spaces for toddlers!

One of the newest indoor play spots for young children is the Fargo Kids Play Museum. It opened in November 2023 and is located at 5670 38th Ave (off of Veterans Boulevard and 40th Avenue South), near Sheyenne High School in West Fargo.

The Play Stations

The Fargo Kids Play Museum features five play station areas: a grocery store, a doctor’s office, a beauty/barber salon, a pretend play home, and a restaurant/cafe. Each space is filled with pretend play toys and stations to explore. Children can use their imaginations to experiment and play in a safe environment.

Parents can also engage in pretend play with their children. Enjoy some pretend tea and cookies, get your hair done at the salon, or swing by the grocery store to pick out your favorite snacks!

Each play station encourages creativity and curiosity! Kids pop music plays during your session and makes for a fun, upbeat environment.

Another nice feature about these play stations (and all of the Fargo Kids Play Museum) is that it’s screen-free. Children can fully engage in imaginative play with several costumes in the home station for dress up. Kids can choose between their favorite stations and engage in whatever brings them the most joy.

More Play Areas

The space also includes a large table for Lego building in the center of the play space.

Create doodles or engage in a game of tic-tac-toe at the large table and bench area, set up with a roll of paper and markers. Puzzles are also located on the table for creative play.

Visit the Truck Stop area to play with dump trucks, garbage trucks, a fire engine, or garbage truck!

Cleaning & Restrooms

When it comes to indoor play spaces, germs might be a concern on the minds of parents. Play spaces are wiped down and sanitized every 90 minutes, after large play sessions (every 60 minutes), and after every birthday party.

A family restroom is located in the facility and equipped with a comfortable changing station for babies. There is also a stool inside the bathroom for children who may need assistance reaching the sink.

Kallie Swenson
In 4th grade, Kallie sported two things: an awkward haircut and the title of “new kid.” Her family moved from Crookston to Moorhead, where she went on to graduate from Moorhead High. After graduating, she packed up and migrated south, to the Twin Cities area. There she lived with an amazing set of roommates… her grandparents! She still considers this one of the best decisions of her life. She attended one year at a community college before deciding she would venture back to Moorhead to earn a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from Minnesota State University Moorhead. Her career spanned across local organizations, including for SCHEELS and The Salvation Army. In 2016, Kallie made the huge decision to buy a house in Barnesville. She closed on her 25th birthday and moved in with her dog, Lily. In 2017, she began dating a long-time friend (not all love is love at first sight!) and got married in March of 2019. She and her husband, Jordan, enjoy traveling, the outdoors, live music, and finding treasures during garbage week. Kallie is now a proud stay-at-home mom to 2 girls. She loves writing about thrifty living, party planning, and nurturing relationships on her blog. When Kallie bought her small, 980-square foot home she never imagined so much love would grow there. Her family eventually plans to build in the country but for now, enjoy the closeness of small living.
