About Children's Museum of Manhattan

The Children's Museum of Manhattan inspires children and families to learn about themselves and our culturally diverse world through a unique environment of interactive exhibitions and programs. Since opening in a neighborhood storefront in 1973, CMOM has grown into a 38,000-square-foot learning facility with outreach programs at nearly 50 sites throughout New York City.
CMOM focuses on four priority areas to impact children in ways that will last a lifetime:
- Early childhood education prepares children for success in school.
- Creativity in the arts and sciences inspires creative and analytical thinking skills for lifelong learning.
- Healthy lifestyles programs provide a blueprint for a family's physical, emotional and environmental well-being.
- Exploration of world cultures gives children awareness, understanding and context for the diverse society in which we all live.
