Children's Museum of Phoenix


Acting on the principle that learning is a joy, the Children's Museum of Phoenix's mission is to engage the minds, muscles and imaginations of children and the grown-ups who care about them. With hands-on, interactive exhibits designed for children ages birth to 10, the Museum focuses on learning through play, with emphasis on early childhood education and school-readiness.


What We Do

The Children's Museum of Phoenix is a place where children play to learn, and grown-ups learn to play. The many developmental stages of a child - social, cognitive, physical, and emotional - have all been considered in the design of our exhibits and our programs. This is an environment in which children can actively play and learn, taking risks when the stakes are low, learning about themselves, the world, and the people around them.

In addition to providing families the space for their children to learn through play, the Children's Museum of Phoenix also serves the community in the following ways:

  • Provides engaging projects, exhibits and programming for young children and their families.
  • Educates parents and caregivers about child development and parenting techniques.
  • Builds cultural understanding, positive social interaction, and celebrates diversity.
  • Serves as a gateway to other cultural institutions and community programs.
