Children’s Museum Downtown


Our Downtown flagship location offers 44,000 square feet of fun, discovery, and learning through play! From the splish-splash and whirlpool of our water play, to indoor “apple picking” and a kid-run TV studio, there are nearly endless opportunities to play, create, and learn.

You’ll find us at 2626 West Broad Street, one block east of Arthur Ashe Boulevard. Just look for the big, red puzzle piece!


At our Downtown location, please use the free parking deck located between the Science Museum of Virginia and the Children’s Museum of Richmond (pictured below). The parking deck can be accessed by turning onto Terminal Pl. off of W. Broad Street. Once on Terminal Pl., please turn right onto the road directly in front of the Children’s Museum. You will see the parking deck up ahead and may make a left turn directly into the entrance.
