Climbing instills confidence and willingness to take small risks. As children climb, they need to make decisions, solve problems, and even visualize the solution. It also develops large motor skills.

Cleary-Kumm Luckey Climber

The Children’s Museum of La Crosse is thrilled to offer Wisconsin’s first-ever Luckey Climber, a one-of-a-kind, 3-story climbing structure that is part jungle gym, part work of art. Designed exclusively for the Museum by noted kid architect Spencer Luckey, the climber spans three stories and features close-up images of the eyes of 60 different animals on the tops and bottoms of its climbing platforms. The eye theme highlights the captivating beauty of the natural world and underscores that humans are not the only animals on our planet.

The Luckey Climber offers adventure to kids and adults while challenging them to problem-solve, think spatially, and most of all, have fun.
