Inspiring children to care
about and change the world.

Through interactive exhibitions exploring science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM), National Children’s Museum is uniquely poised to develop young minds.
Celebrating the joy of modern childhood, the Museum will spark curiosity and ignite creativity for children from birth to age 12 and engage the whole family.  

Our New Home

We are thrilled to reopen steps from the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C. at 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue NW. Our new home has onsite parking and is accessible via public transportation at the Federal Triangle Metro stop and by bus.
With modern design and amenities, we are
re-imagining how a children's museum looks and operates. Our next generation museum will bring hands-on, relevant content and magical experiences to today's young learners.

Serving Our Community

Our outreach programs will bring learning beyond the Museum walls, and enrich the educational opportunities for all children.
