Engage, Encourage, and Challenge!

The Niantic Children's Museum is an interactive, hands-on, educational place for children to try on new roles, let their imaginations soar and feel safe while exploring the world around them

With 5,000 square feet – all on one floor – and outdoor playspace, nearly all is wheelchair accessible. We engage, encourage, and challenge children from 9 months to 9 years in the arts, sciences, and world cultures.

Explore the Discovery Room featuring Kelsey’s Vision and science-based activities. Visit the Imaginative Play side where you can pilot a fishing boat, take on the role of architect with our giant foam blocks, or visit the global village and celebrate a variety of cultures. Don’t miss Toddler Land which welcomes our youngest visitors. Our outdoor area delights youngsters with a real tree house, whale drum, climbing wall, kid-sized zipline, and performing stage!

See our Exhibits page! Exhibits include Imagination Sparkers for adults looking for a bit more information to spark the children’s imagination. Many include classic children’s books to read to their child.

Older children will enjoy the “Museum Challenges” – like a scavenger hunt to explore within the museum. Adults and children can both explore a more indepth study with kits available for the Creation Station! Come ready to play…and learn along the way!
