Overview

Located in Downtown Evansville, Indiana, The Koch Family Children's Museum of Evansville (cMoe) offers over 18,000 square feet of galleries and exhibits, housed in a beautiful historic Art Deco building once home to the public library. The mission of the museum is to spark the curious minds and imaginations of children and their families through dynamic exhibits, programs, and activities. Museum staff and supporters strive to meet that mission everyday by encouraging young minds to explore all that cMoe offers and experience learning through play. Children (and their parents) are encouraged to play hands-on with galleries and exhibits. Popular favorites include performing a play in the 5th Street Theater, splashing in the Wet Deck, climbing through Moe the two-story duck, playing the laser harp, acting like a booger in a giant nose, and chatting with the talking Mark Twain bust. cMoe is located within walking distance to downtown restaurants and other attractions. Hours of Operation Tuesday through Thursday: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday to Saturday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday: Noon to 5 p.m. CLOSED MONDAYS

We always take our grandchildren here when they are in town. It is smaller than many of the larger Children's Museums, but still plenty big enough with lots for kids to do that our grandchildren love it. They live in Indianapolis, which has a huge...More

We were in the area visiting our daughter. Our other daughter and family, including 18 month grandson, was the reason for the trip. I'd say it was average. Our grandson had a great time and that's what it's all about. What I have to compare...More

Visited CMOE over the weekend with a friend and her three children ages 8 and under. One never realizes just how much fun an adult can have hearing the laughter and joy out of so many children at once. This place offers so many physical,...More

We visited twice and had fun each time. The water play area is small compared to other Children's Museums we have seen. Our grandson had a blast and there were hardly any people there mid-week.

Hi, Typically, cMoe is busy. However, after 1pm we are quieter. My recommendation would be to visit after lunch time. I hope this helps! - Ashley McReynolds Director of Marketing and Outreach
