Children’s Museum of Manhattan

Everyone loves being transported to another world. For thousands of children in New York, the Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM) provides just such a portal. Since 1973, this community cornerstone has been offering educational and engaging escapes to city toddlers. The exhibit Gods, Myths & Mortals: Discover Ancient Greece takes you to a foreign land while teaching art, science, and literature. Your child can learn colors at the grocery story in the Little West Side, or experience the rainforest through Adventures with Dora and Diego. This 38,000 square-foot facility can even be the setting of your child’s memorable birthday party. Because of its commitment to families as well as children, CMOM is also dedicated to serving the community through outreach programs at 49 sites throughout the city – including schools and libraries. Through August 28th, you can revisit happy childhood memories yourself while viewing original illustrations from your favorite pictures books in Golden Legacy: Original Art from 65 Years of Golden Books.
