Indoor Playgrounds

These spots have air conditioning and activities for the kids to get out some energy! Bonus, most of them have free WiFi!


There might not be a spot cooler in the summer than the movie theater. Don’t forget your sweatshirt!

Ice Skating

Remember winter? Indoor ice skating will jog your memory. Cool off and maybe also rediscover your appreciation for the warmer weather.


All of the bowling alleys are nice and cool! And if you sign up for Kids Bowl Free, you’ll just need to pay for shoe rental. And probably nachos.

Roller Skating

When’s the last time you had on skates? It is just as much fun as you remember and this time you get to hold hands with your kids.


There’s a museum for everyone in and around Northeast Wisconsin. Art, science, play, boats, cars, and more! If you have an explorer membership from The Building for Kids or other area museums, you can access free or discounted entrance to many nearby museums.
