The National Children’s Museum has a long-standing history of serving the Washington area community. When the Capital Children’s Museum closed in 2004, NCM began operating as a “museum without walls,” partnering with like-minded organizations to provide the region with a wide variety of community and school outreach programs and traveling exhibits. Additionally, NCM staff has conducted teacher training programs in more than 14 states.
