About Children’s Museums


Children’s museums are places where children learn through play and exploration in environments designed just for them. Reflecting their diverse communities, children’s museums create playful, interactive learning experiences. In an increasingly complex world, children’s museums provide a place where all kids can learn through play with the caring adults in their lives.

Why Visit a Children’s Museum?

Many children’s museums are located in major travel and tourism destinations. More and more families visit children’s museums each year for unique, face-to-face fun, enlightenment and shared experiences not found in traditional museums or other popular destinations.

What is A Children’s Museum?

A children’s museum is defined as an institution committed to serving the needs and interests of children by providing exhibit and programs that stimulate curiosity and motivate learning.

Children’s museums are client-centered institutions, the needs and interests of the audience, motivation to learn, and the empowerment of the visitor through contact and direct experience with objects are as important as subject or content focus.

Meet Community Needs

Children’s museums have a special opportunity to meet broader community needs.

“Children’s museums are integral parts of a community, often working in tandem with other educational and community partners to support children and families,” said ACM Executive Director Laura Huerta Migus
