Happy curiosity is the hallmark of childhood. It’s a belief that makes us ask a question: What can a museum be?

It can be a place where learning looks like playing. Where “do not touch” becomes “try it out.” And where there’s always a reason to come back for more. We believe in helping children explore, so we’ve built an environment for creative play and learning that’s as one-of-a-kind as every child who walks through our doors. And, we do everything in our playful power to give children a chance to dream, imagine, invent and do, in childhood and far beyond. Because learning often starts at home and school. But it thrives here—a “third place” in the world for children and families to play and learn together.
