Busy Brains Children’s Museum (BBCM) has taken over the old Bath & Body Works location on the lower level and will be in the mall through January 5, 2020. The pop-up space provides a smart and fun play area for young kids almost daily (see hours at the end).

In addition to their usual, well-loved traveling exhibits BBCM has added four brand new ones:

  • Magna Wall
  • Look Inside
  • Light Site
  • Spine Vine

The new space will also allow Busy Brains to host birthday parties on Sundays throughout the Pop-up time period giving parents another awesome birthday venue in lake county.

The Pop-Up location gives you a chance to support the Busy Brains mission to bring a permeant children’s museum to Lake County. It also allows you to sneak in some educational fun and mix up your usual mall playdate options.
