New Haven: Make It Happen Here

The museum is housed in an historic and recently renovated building within the cultural 'corridor' of the city's Town Green District. This central location bridges the New Haven Green, the downtown business area and the arts district of Audubon Street. It is easily accessible to all!

The Children's Building is guided by the tenets of Universal Design. Ramps abound to make exhibits accessible. Braille books are given to children who are blind through the Creating Readers program. Stories are told in American Sign Language. For more information, read our review in Accessible Connecticut.

IMPORTANT: Due to the growing concern regarding the coronavirus, we have decided to close the Children's Museum until further notice.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
