We just got back from the National Children’s Museum press preview and had a blast! The museum is the only congressionally designated museum to focus exclusively on children, and its mission is “ to inspire children to care about and improve the world.” The staff there was great, helpful, and interactive with the children. It was fun to be a place where learning through play is encouraged, and little ones.
The museum exhibits are all located on one level with 18,000 sq. ft. of public space.
The exhibits are divided up into the following:
The National Children’s Museum is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. between Labor Day and Memorial Day, and will remain open until 7 p.m. during the summer months. Admission is $10 per person, with no cost for infants 12 months and under. NCM also offers group rates (consisting of 10 people or more and reserved in advance) at $8 per child and $10 per adult, with one adult receiving free entry for every five children. Various membership package options are available, offering free year-round admission, exclusive benefits and access to special Museum events.
