This BIG list of indoor playgrounds in Minnesota lets you find an indoor play space near you when the weather is too cold, rainy or hot to play outside!
Minnesota Indoor Playgrounds
I’ve lived in Minnesota most of my life, so I know what it takes to survive a Minnesota winter. My family and I love spending time outdoors – yes, even during the winter months – but there are always times throughout the year where kids just need to burn off some energy in a climate-controlled environment.
Whether you and your children are going stir-crazy in the winter months or need a break from the heat come summertime, here’s a HUGE roundup of all of the indoor playgrounds in Minnesota I could find. Some of these indoor play spaces are small, some are big…some are mainly bounce houses, some others have indoor playground equipment…and some are free, some are paid. But there’s probably one near you!
This list is alphabetized by city/town. It includes indoor playgrounds, play spaces, play areas and play gyms. Keep in mind that most locations require socks (hard to remember come summertime!), and some may be seasonal and/or have limited hours. Check the individual playgrounds’ websites (linked within the list) for the latest information.
Bookmark this list (or pin it on Pinterest) for when you just need to get out of the house, no matter the weather, or when you’re looking for a fun excursion on your next trip to another town in Minnesota. Oh, and if you know of any others we’ve missed, please leave a comment and let us know so we can get it added ASAP. Enjoy!
