Downtown

The oldest and the largest of all of our four Children’s Museum locations 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.

Children’s Museum Downtown is open year-round, seven days a week, from 9:30am to 5:00pm (closed only on New Year’s Day, Easter Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day). You’ll find us at 2626 West Broad Street, one block east of Arthur Ashe Boulevard. Just look for the big, red puzzle piece!

*Closes early on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve at 2pm
