Crayola Experience Parking

On street, metered parking is available using the Park Mobile app to pay for your allotted time. However, it can be challenging to find parking in the downtown area. There are parking garages located on North 4th Street behind Eastern Public Market and 123 South 3rd Street behind City Hall. Both garages are a short walk, around two-three blocks, from the Crayola Experience building.

There are two entrances to the Crayola Experience. The main entrance is on Centre Square Circle, and the second entrance is along Pine Street. Tickets can be pre-purchased online at a discount price. Tickets can also be purchased at the door, but they are more expensive.

With admission, you’ll receive tokens that can be used at stations throughout the Experience. Additional tokens can be purchased.  Since most people start on the second floor (the first floor with activities), it’s a good idea to start on the top floor and work your way down.

Crayola Experience Paint Station

There are several different rooms to play in at the Crayola Experience.  Each room has an activity or two tied to the making of crayons or the use of crayons, markers, or paint.

One unique activity is Water Works. In this area, you take a boat through several obstacles, including a lock and canal system.

Another favorite activity is on the top floor. Here, you can melt and mold crayons into other shapes.

In the craft area, on the particular day that we were there, they had super hero crafts.  Kids could make their own super hero belts and masks. This activity changes with the seasons and events.

Another popular area is where you can create personalized crayons with a custom name on them.  This is where we used the majority of our tokens. It’s a great souvenir from this trip.  The machines to make the personalized crayons get busy, so if you see this room empty take advantage of it.

Crayola Experience also has a multi-level play area, where kids can run around and get some energy out. Note that the twist slide is very fast! The kids were flying out at the bottom. For toddlers, there is a smaller play structure, too.

The show is short and very kid-friendly.  The show we experienced took you through the process of how Crayola makes crayons. Due to staffing levels, the show may be a pre-recorded video.

Crayola Experience Gift Shop

The gift shop is free to visit and open to the public when the Crayola Experience is open. In the gift shop, there are many unique, Crayola-branded apparel and accessories. There’s also the opportunity to purchase a box of crayons or markers that can be filled with just your favorite colors.

Tips for Visiting the Crayola Experience

Have your children wear older clothes.  The paint and markers can get a bit messy. A backup outfit may be a good idea due to the water play area.

Save your tokens to get personalized crayons in one of the first rooms downstairs.  I found that was the best value for your token and the crayons are a great souvenir.

Start on the top floor and work your way down to go in the opposite direction of the crowds. The top floor has the melt & mold and drip art exhibits.

For a sweet treat after your visit to the Crayola Experience, grab an ice cream cone from Bank Street Creamery. It’s located around the corner from the Pine Street entrance, on an adorable side street with string lights and seating.
