Since 1988 the Children's Museum of the Arts has introduced hundreds of thousands of children (and their parents) to the joy of art.

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
- Pablo Picasso

What You Will See

While rotating exhibitions and a permanent collection of over 2,000 works of art created by children are available to be enjoyed, the real draw of the museum is the opportunity to paint, draw, sculpt, and explore the many mediums and disciplines of artistic creativity. Enroll your child in one of the many classes (all the way up to the age of 15), or stop in and explore the standard art-making options available to daily visitors.

Why You Should Go

This is the last of the "children's" museums that kids will age out of. Where older kids may find playing with the interactive science, cultural, professional, and historical exhibitions found in other children's museums, the art-making opportunities at the CMA, together with the exhibitions, can be challenge kids through their early teens. There are many options for children's museums in the city. If your child is artistically inclined, put the CMA towards the top of your list.
