Something big, fun and new has arrived at the Building for Kids Children’s Museum (BFKCM)! Big League Fun, a traveling, interactive baseball-themed exhibit is here in Appleton for a limited time! Sponsored locally by the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, the exhibit includes fun for baseball fans young and old. Science, math, trivia, roll play and more makes this immersive experience both educational and fun. What we loved was the balance of technology with active activities and the educational tidbits.

  • Active Activities: Baseball fundamentals including pitching, hitting, throwing, catching and running
  • Role Play: Imaginative play with the ticket booth and concession stand
