    New York For Kids > Children's Museum of Manhattan

    The Children's Museum of Manhattan

    Recommended Age Group
    1 - 12 years old

    Children's Museum of ManhattanThis Museum describes itself as "5 floors bursting with unique exhibits and daily programs for family fun together," and after a visit you'll find yourself agreeing.

    The Children's Museum of Manhattan opened in 1973 with the purpose of bringing the world of art to families in the New York area. In the 40 years that they've been inviting children to create, play and learn, they have not lost sight of that idea.

    Their Early Childhood Center develops the artist in children from 18 months through 4 years old by hands on painting, climbing, sliding and singing. The Russell Berrie Creativity Lab offers drop-in programs for this age group each Thursday and Friday from 10:30am 4:30pm. For the 5 and older crowd the weekend workshops in the Creativity Lab offer exciting multidisciplinary programs in the visual and performing arts, science, and literacy. The computer lab offers kids who are 6 or older a hands on experience in graphic design that they can print out and take home with them.

    Moms, Dads and other grownups can join the kids in many of the ongoing exhibitions.

    If you're visiting Manhattan, plan at least a few hours with the kids in this enchanted place. If you live here, discover a great resource for your own budding artists, architects or any creative child.
