The Children's Museum of Cleveland reopens in its new location on Monday, November 6, 2017. 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. 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 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. It's a place for families to play, connect and learn together in an environment designed to excite, enrich, and inspire.

Utter madness, but still extremely worthwhile. The play areas were incredible and well-built. Safety conscious staff were always walking around, eyes on the children and friendly.

This children’s museum is an upgrade from the last one. However, we hoped to see things in addition to what was in the last museum but most if not all was missing. If you decide to take your kids down in the basement first just...More

It is important to note that the Children's Museum just reopened in a brand-new space in Cleveland's Midtown neighborhood (on Euclid Ave kind of halfway between University Circle and Cleveland State). The new museum is awesome - my kids are on the older end (9...More

A magnificent historic Cleveland mansion is being converted into a wonderful Children's Museum. Beautiful architecture and color schemes. High ceilings and beautiful floor plan for the museum. Put this on your "must visit" list
