Experience No Rules...Except

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, resiliency and optimism.

our programs and events engage and inspire


why play + art matter

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.
