Northeast Ohio's premier destination for young children to learn through play with interactive exhibits in an environment designed to excite, enrich and inspire. Let's Play!
As a leader in imaginative and creative play, The Children's Museum of Cleveland (CMC) gives children a place and the tools to write their own script and discover their own adventures through our interactive exhibits and programs. A child will be naturally drawn to those activities that most excite and engage him or her.
We offer an open-ended learning environment giving children the opportunity to imagine, experiment, problem-solve and communicate - building skills for a 21st-century learner. We are an advocate for self-directed play as one of the best ways for a young child to learn.
We are a museum for all children - of all abilities, backgrounds, and ages. In our beautiful, historic new home, we respect not only childhood but also the parent and caregiver as the child's first teacher. As a vital community resource, we provide experiences that can bridge a child's learning between the Museum, home, and school.
