The Children's Museum of Manhattan is Moving to a New Location


The Children's Museum of Manhattan (CMOM) is moving to a new location. The beloved children's museum will remain on the Upper West Side but move a little further uptown, to 96th street, to a space double in size.

CMOM recently announced that it would be taking over First Church of Christ, Scientist at 361 Central Park West and 96th St. for its new home. The move is anticipated for late 2021.

The new location will allow for double the exhibition space and will be able to accomodate twice as many visitors. This is exciting news for New York parents who flock to the museum during rainy days, days off from school, or to see its exciting new exhibitions.

“We are excited to begin the design process with FXCollaborative as we plan for a future where we can engage even more children and families across New York City,” said Laurie M. Tisch, Founding Board Chair and Co-chair, Capital Campaign, Children’s Museum of Manhattan, in a press release.



In addition to more space, the venue will include galleries, studio work areas, a café, a stroller storage and designated spaces for nursing mothers. 

“For 28 years, the Archdiocese of New York City has been a gracious landlord. They have stood with us to make the lives of our City’s children better for which we are grateful,” said Andrew S. Ackerman, Executive Director, Children’s Museum of Manhattan, in a statement. “Now we look forward to collaborating with our many constituents to create a much larger center for learning and discovery that reflects NYC’s diversity.” 

I can't wait to check out the new space with my kiddos! CMOM will be open at its current location, 212 West 83rd Street, until the move takes place.
