It’s our Birthday!

Help us celebrate the day we opened the Children’s Museum 40 years ago with party hats, treats and lots of fun activities!

11:00 am  – Sing happy birthday to the museum and help us “blow out the candles” on a giant cake from Prantl’s Bakery

Today’s admission price is a throwback to our first admission price in 1983  – $1.50!

You can purchase tickets in advance online or through walk-up admission.  Children under two and members are free.
