NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: The Childrens Museum NYC is located in Upper West Side Manhattan. This museum for children encourages play and exploration throughout each exhibit, allowing kids to explore and nurture their own minds with the interactive toys and displays. The exhibits for the Childrens Museum NYC are intended for kids that are younger than 12 months old and go up to 6 year olds.

Why We Go: Childrens Museum NYC is a nurturing environment for infants, toddlers, and young children to explore and learn while having fun.

  • Dora the Explora Exhibit: The second floor of the Childrens Museum NYC consists of a huge Dora the Explora exhibit. This is a place where children from ages 2-6 can play and learn more about other cultures.
  • Multi-Cultural Exhibits: From the Dora exhibit to play places that teach about stories from China, the emphasis on the exhibits at Childrens Museum NYC is on play and on nurturing a kid's mind to other cultures.
  • Outdoor Activities: If your child wishes to explore outside, there is an area called City Splash that is open during the summer. The City Splash exhibit uses water activities to teach kids things like which objects sink or float.

Inside Knowledge: The Childrens Museum NYC was founded in 1973 by Bette Korman. It originally started in a basement storefront in order to serve the Harlem and Upper West Side neighborhoods, and moved to its current location in 1989.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Bring Your Infant: Not only are children under 12 months old get free admission, but there is also play space for them to enjoy. All young children, no matter how young, are welcome to enjoy Playworks at the very least.
  • Do Come During Summer: We really like the City Splash exhibit, but it is not open except during the summer when the weather permits it. If you want to plan a trip to Childrens Museum NYC, then we recommend waiting until the summer to go.
  • Don't Go to the Parents Workshops: We feel that the price tag of the parents workshops, which can cost you about $500 per class, is a little high. Enjoy watching your kids in the exhibits, but save your money from the classes.
  • Don't Stop Observing Your Kids: Childrens Museum NYC encourages you to keep watching your children. You can start to see what gets them interested and what inspires them to learn more in the exhibits.
