How fun does “Sock Skating” sound? Our very own, Long Island Children’s Museum in Garden City is bringing the joy of Winter indoors for the ultimate family fun experience. Enjoy the memories you will make inside the Snowflake Village with your kids as you enjoy the experience wearing “sock skates”.
This event is happening now through Sunday, January 7, 2024!
“There’s a nip in the air and the hint of frost on the windows. Get ready to enjoy all the thrills of the snowy season, while staying warm and cozy as LICM’s popular winter season exhibit returns.
Slip on “sock skates” and take a spin on our indoor rink. Enjoy all the fun of this winter sport without runny noses or cold hands. Our indoor rink is made from a high-tech synthetic polymer surface that lets kids slide around without blades.
This exhibit offers plenty of opportunities for active play as kids stretch, twirl and glide at LICM. As visitors step off the “ice” they can jump into winter dramatic play in our Snowflake Village. Become a baker in our holiday sweet shop, step inside a giant snowman and serve up some hot cocoa, take a turn in our rink “ticket booth” and “warm up” around our rink side “fire” pit as the whole family enjoys cozy winter fun.”
Snowflake Sock Skating will be open when the Museum is open, free with general admission.

About the Long Island Children’s Museum (www.licm.org)
The mission of Long Island Children’s Museum is to connect all our communities’ children, and those who care for them, to a life of wonder, imagination and exploration. At LICM, children discover their passions and their relationship to the world we share. The 40,000-square-foot museum welcomes nearly 275,000 children annually. The private, not-for-profit institution chartered by the New York State Board of Regents, offers museum-based educational programs and cultural experiences, as well as an extensive community outreach program offered in schools, libraries and youth centers across Long Island. Additionally, the Children’s Museum operates the historic Nunley’s Carousel in association with Nassau County, one of three intact Stein & Goldstein carousels still in existence.
LICM is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), recognized as the field’s gold standard for museum excellence and signifies a museum’s quality, credibility and deep commitment to mission and community. Less than 3% of the nation’s more than 30,000 museums have earned this recognition. LICM is currently the only children’s museum in NY State, and just one of 16 nationwide, to achieve accreditation. The Museum is the recipient of the 2012 National Medal for Museum & Library Service, the highest honor conferred on museums for extraordinary civic, educational, economic, environmental, and social contributions.
