Always something new to experience at The New Children's Museum.

Why do we have "new" in our name?

We are a new model of children's museum that uses contemporary art to stimulate imagination and creativity. It's a new approach and a new way of doing things. 

No other children's museum in America does what we do. 

There is always something new to discover and experience.  We continually add new workshops, programs and activities to help children discover new ways to explore their creativity.  So come think, play and create with us...and see what new means to you.

Nerd HQ


The Museum will be CLOSED to prepare for Nerd HQ 7/6 - 7/8; open during Nerd HQ 7/9 - 7/12 (FREE event).  

We reopen 7/14 for the rest of summer!
