Nature centers encourage children and families to connect with the outdoors, learn about the environment, and spend quality time together!

Here is a list of nature education centers and nature museums close to Philadelphia that are each full of year-round family activities, classes, camps, and hands-on exploration opportunities. Your kids will love visiting animals, bird watching, making mud pies, beekeeping, canoeing, catching butterflies, adventuring with tadpoles in the pond, playing in tree forts, and much much more! Imagine all this right in your backyard?
