The Santa Cruz Children’s Museum of Discovery is not actually located in Aptos – but it’s right next door in Capitola, and it’s such an amazing place that were it actually located in Aptos, it surely would be an Aptos Gem. And although it isn’t physically in Aptos, there’s no question that many Aptos children (of all ages!) are going to be spending a lot of time at the Santa Cruz Children’s Museum of Discovery.
Aptos and Santa Cruz offer natural outdoor wonders which are hard to match, especially for an area which is so close to major population centers like the San Francisco Bay Area. One thing that Santa Cruz County has lacked, however, is a great place for kids to come play, learn, explore, and grow. That has all changed with the advent of the Santa Cruz Children’s Museum of Discovery, located in the Capitola Mall, and open seven days per week.
Watch this video below to learn more about the museum from its founder, Patrice Keet.
