In the heart of Downtown Hammond, you'll find one of Tangipahoa Parish's newest attractions in the Louisiana Children's Discovery Center. A Children's Museum of sorts, this unique facility chose to branch out from the traditional centers of this nature and focus on Louisiana and Tangipahoa Parishes. The center features hands-on activities for toddlers and children up to age 10. Local produce, industries, and restaurants are the focus for this fun facility.
Visitors can find Middendorf's restaurant, a "pick the strawberry" game, dairy cows ready for milking, a shrimp/fishing boat, hot air balloon, construction site and more. The creation station is equipped for hands-on art making and all exhibits are interactive. Daily activities are planned which feature a safe and engaging experience for the entire family. Playologists are on-site for any questions and to create a one-of-a-kind experience for kids and parents alike.
