access programs

All children should have the chance to dream big.
At National Children’s Museum, we are working to ensure that all children can access the high-quality science, technology, engineering, arts, and math experiences and programs that will spark their imagination.

community membership programs

National Children’s Museum is partnering with local organizations that serve families to ensure the price of admission is not a barrier for any child. By partnering with libraries, food banks, women’s shelters, learning centers, and other community nonprofits that families know and trust, the Museum extends its reach and makes a greater impact.
