Please note: The Museum's elevator is currently out of service, and we unfortunately do not expect it to be back in operation by this Saturday, March 25.
The Museum will be open to the public on Saturday 3/25 for our usual hours from 12-5pm, but guests will not have access to the elevator. We are working hard to get it fixed and will share an update as soon as possible. Our sincere apologies, as it is very important to us that the Museum is accessible to ALL members of our community.

Educational Field Trips
Through educational field trips for early childhood programs and elementary schools, we provide a unique destination where both teachers and students can learn in a multiple intelligences environment.
Fees & Information:
The Connecticut Children's Museum is open to field trips from local schools and early childhood programs Monday through Thursday mornings.
On the day of your trip, the Museum will be reserved for your group's exclusive use in the morning, so you may arrive and depart anytime between 9 am and 12 pm.
Admission is $10/person (children and adults), plus a $50 field trip reservation fee. The field trip fee is due on the day of your trip and can be adjusted for the actual number of visiting children. We accept cash or check (checks made out to “Connecticut Children’s Museum”), or credit cards (cards subject to a 2.9% processing fee).
For New Haven Public Schools, we waive the field trip reservation fee as well as the admission fees for adult chaperones.
We request a chaperone-to-child ratio of 1:5 or better.
Masks are currently optional, but we reserve the right to update this policy, including if the New Haven County CDC COVID-19 community level is classified as “High”.
