shaping the next generation of leaders

At The New Children’s Museum, we believe play and art-making promote the skills that our future leaders need: creativity, confidence, problem-solving, interpersonal skills, critical thinking, collaboration and optimism.

Art inspires innovation

We believe that all children should have access to the creative process and arts of the highest quality. We believe the arts play a critical role in children’s creative, emotional and intellectual development.
