The New Children’s Museum

The New Children’s Museum is a multi-level 50,000 square-foot facility filled with inventive and engaging experiences with contemporary art.

This arts-based museum features room-sized art installations including Cash Machine, a special machine that happily sucks up your dollar bills and pushes it through a maze of tubes and bells and Wobbleland, an active space for toddlers where can play with food sculptures. More installations include The Wonder Sound, a labyrinth of rooms, nooks, and ropes, plus many more interactive spaces.

A variety of art studios are also available for kids to create with clay and paint, plus the Innovators Lab, the museum’s very own makerspace.

Camps, community programs, birthday parties, and memberships are available. Workshops and special events are scheduled daily.
