Does the climbing frame or the child-friendly museum not feel appropriate at the moment? When the kids are restless and bouncing off the walls, it's always a good idea to have some activities for them prepared in advance. Puzzles, games or other arts and crafts can let the kids (and the parents at home with them) exercise their energy to avoid excess boredom and a crummy mood.
When you really sink your teeth into creating or building something the hours can just fly by before you know it. The great thing about arts and crafts is that they work for all ages.
