Open Play

  • The Artnasium LLC 7500 Memorial Parkway Suite 117 Huntsville, AL 35802 (map)

Open Play is where you pay to play. Parents bring their child in and pay and the kids get to play. Parents can play with the kids or rest on our couch. We have WIFI if you want to bring your work along.

What you may play with: You may play in any of our centers, the paint and craft center, magnet wall, lego table and wall, vet office, play cafe, school area, puppet theater, game tables, puzzle table, fire & police station, and more. We love and promote art but we have so much more as well. We have something for all little kids! There is typically not an instructed art lesson during open play, the kids get to use self directed play, an important part of childhood development! Occasionally we will offer an instructed activity and will announce it on FB, IG & our calendar.

Ages: Our Open Play is geared towards ages 1-10. Some older kids like what we offer but it depends on the kid. Feel free to come check us out and see if we would be perfect for your child.

Parents stay for Open Play.

Cost: $14 per child (adults are free). Or you can buy 3 passes for $36, 10 for $100, or a membership $40 monthly for the first child and $10 for each additional sibling.

How long you can stay: Your pass is good for the day. You can stay for as little or as long as you like in the same day during our open hours. You may also leave and get lunch and come back in the same day.

Food: You may bring in food. We do not have any restrictions we just ask that you keep it to the designated table so that we make sure food is cleaned up properly. Please do not let your child walk around with food and drinks.

Open play hours change due to private events and field trips in the studio. It is best to check our calendar to see when open play is before making the trip. If you or your group want to come in on a day that open play is not scheduled check with us and if we can open up for you we will.

We are a family owned and operated mom and pop original play place. Our family comes first and we want it that way. We are easy to work with so if you have a request for us let us know and we will try to work it out for you. Occasionally our schedule changes because a kid gets sick or someone has to go to the doctor, we apologize for any inconvenience this causes anyone but again our family comes first and our dream to provide a place where kids can play, imagine and create comes next. If we ever do have to cancel an Open Play we will announce it on FB and IG.
