New York is a playground for kids as much as it’s one for adults. With actual playgrounds scattered throughout the five boroughs as well as bike trails, hiking trails, outdoor activities and tons of kid-friendly activities and attractions. It’s great to get the kids outside for fresh air and space to run around, but sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate. So next time it’s too hot, too cold, or too rainy to get them outside, here are some of the best indoor activities in NYC for kids.

The range of things to do with kids indoors in New York runs the gamut from amazing children's museums to super-fun kids’ cooking classes. There are attractions that are fun for the whole family and kid-friendly pizza places. You can always take the kids shopping for toys, but these indoor activities are more engaging, educational and fun.

Once the kids have burned off all that energy inside, they’ll probably be hungry. So check out some family-friendly restaurants or, to reward yourself for handling the kids all day like a superstar, head to a kid-friendly bar.

Prepare your taste buds for DUMBO's out-of-this-world food hall with spectacular views. Time Out Market New York, located at 55 Water St (within Empire Stores), boasts 21,000 square feet across two floors and includes three bars plus a scenic fifth floor outdoor roof deck. Say hello to views of the East River, Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge and Lower Manhattan skyline—and our favorite spot to grab a bite.

If you're searching for ways to keep your creative kiddos engaged, take a trip to Chelsea.  This is an innovation space for tiny New Yorkers with big dreams. The hub is geared toward visitors ages 3–12 who are curious about STEAM studies and art classes for kids. Arguably one of the main draws to the space is the "Blank Canvas," where participants help piece together a new monthly exhibit for The GIANT Room's gallery. Exciting workshops, including "Storytelling, Animation and Character Design" and "Design and Fabrication," are also available.

If your littles have begun drafting a holiday wishlist, now is the time to pay a visit to one of the most popular New York toy store locales. Beginning today, CAMP will transform into a winter wonderland. With the help of eko, the shop's Toy Lab CAMP theme will boast a variety of interactive features that emanate major North Pole vibes. Akin to channeling the role of elves, little shoppers will make their way into the "fun-o-vator," select a toy-testing job (funfluencer, awesomeness agent and play pioneer) and receive a lanyard that they'll get hole-punched as they test each item. It sounds like Santa's workshop has a bit of competition from CAMP!

"Mall" isn't necessarily an accurate way to describe American Dream.  Sure, the Jersey attraction boasts hundreds of retail options, from Zara and H&M to Saks Fifth Avenue and Tiffany & Co., but the three-million-square-foot destination is definitely an entertainment hub that needs to be on your radar.  Check out all that awaits: Nickelodeon Universe, DreamWorks Water Park, Big SNOW Ski and Snowboard Park and more.

The Hunters Point Library is a stunner, a public amenity so airy and tasteful it looks like it could be in the capital of a Scandinavian country. The library is more than a pretty facade—it's some serious architecture.  Most importantly, it's a library with an amazing section for kids and some fantastic children's programs, including Toddler Times, Saturday Pre-K Music and Play Times, Wednesday Crafternoons and Thursday STEAM Afternoons. You can find a calendar of activities online.

Home to the largest and arguably most fabulous collection of dinosaur fossils in the world, AMNH’s fourth-floor dino halls have been blowing kids' minds for decades. Roughly 80 percent of the bones on display were actually dug out of the ground; the rest are casts. The Hall of Human Origins boasts a fine display of your old cousins, the Neanderthals. The Hall of Biodiversity examines world ecosystems and environmental preservation, and a life-size, 100-foot-long model of a blue whale hangs from the ceiling of the Hall of Ocean Life.

When it was founded in 1899, the BCM was the country’s first museum specifically made for children. Today it’s one of the most comprehensive, with a permanent collection of 30,000 objects, including musical instruments, masks, dolls and fossils. Kids have fun while learning (sneaky!) at interactive exhibits like “World Brooklyn,” a pint-size cityscape lined by faux stores where young’uns can weigh ingredients and knead pretend dough at the Mexican Bakery, or shop for cans of Indian ghee and Turkish candy at the International Grocery.

Rather than being a place to learn math, the museum is a place to realize all the remarkable things math can be used to create. Its 30-plus interactive exhibits include the Wall of Fire, a laser "wall" that shows visitors that cross-sections aren't always what you think they are; Math Square, a Jumbotron on the floor that connects each person standing on it by the shortest path possible, changing the moment anyone moves; a design studio where participants create a 3-D design on a screen, for a chance to have it "printed" into an actual sculpture via a 3-D printer; and Enigma Café, a place where families can sit down at tables to work on digital puzzles.

This studio is geared for children, teens and adults, with more sophisticated art projects.

The 1913 Beaux Arts train station is the city’s most spectacular point of arrival. The station played an important role in the nation’s historic preservation movement, after a series of legal battles that culminated in the 1978 Supreme Court decision affirming NYC’s landmark laws. One notable oddity: the constellations on the Main Concourse ceiling are drawn in reverse, as if seen from heaven.

Though the city's made up of five boroughs, it has just three public library systems. The largest—the NYPL—runs all libraries in Manhattan, Staten Island and the Bronx.
