Logan’s KidPort Play Area

Boston, Massachusetts

If you find yourself flying this holiday season, a layover in Boston wouldn‘t be the worst luck in the world. Logan International Airport’s KidPort is a kid’s paradise, conveniently located in the Terminal C departure area. Sponsored by Boston Children’s Museum, this is much more than a play area; it’s a hand’s-on learning experience. Of course, after being cooped up on a plane and in waiting areas for hours, your kids (and you) won’t care as much about that as they do about the chance to burn some energy. They can check out the kid-geared exhibit on airline travel and play on the airplane and baggage claim slides. There’s also a control tower exhibit and “What’s Outside?“ window display. If you’re bored, stretch your mind at the magnetic poetry wall. And infants and toddlers have a separate play area of their own.

Worth noting: There is a smaller version of Kidport located in the Satelite Building by Gate A18.

Date last visited: June 2009
