Indoor Play in the Twin Cities

Minnesota winters are long and the coveted days of spring, summer and fall are still sprinkled with rainy days. In order to survive the ups and downs of our weather with the kids, we’ve compiled a list of the best indoor play in the Twin Cities. Looking for open jump times at a nearby trampoline park? Or maybe free activities for all ages? From community center play areas to indoor playgrounds, indoor waterparks to museums, you’re sure to find some family fun activities to keep you busy on rainy days and throughout the winter.

COVID-19 Update: We understand each family has a different comfort level in regards to public spaces, even those that are allowed to be open. We support each family’s individual choices for their children and will continue to be sure you are aware of all indoor play area offerings in the metro area, especially those that allow for limited contact and digital offerings.
