In collaboration with Bombas and Rit Dye, CMOM is excited to present Tie Dye July, which invites kids to design their own socks and t-shirts in red, white, and blue— and the rest of the rainbow too! Families can visit CMOM’s Tie Dye July station as part of their two-hour session tickets. Children can take home their custom styles, in a CMOM-provided travel carrier, to wear as a reminder of the power of their self-expression.

 Tie Dye July is made possible through the generosity of Bombas and Rit, whose “One Purchased = One Donated” mission supporting unhoused members of the community echoes CMOM’s own ongoing commitment to families living in temporary housing through free visits to the museum and citywide outreach.

Upper West Side, NY


  • Standard hours: Tuesday–Friday, Sunday, 10am–5pm; Saturday, 10am–7pm; Open Mondays, 10am-5pm in summer only

  • 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.
