Our Future Home

In the heart of NYC, there is a wondrous place designed to serve all children. A place that offers a gateway to the arts, the sciences and the vibrant cultural life of the city– the Children’s Museum of Manhattan.

For years CMOM has created visionary experiences in a building challenged by space restrictions, structural impediments, and rent regulations. Space for visitor amenities is lacking and the Museum is limited in the number of people it can serve.

We are pleased to announce that in late December, the Children’s Museum of Manhattan purchased 361 Central Park West as the site of our future home. The new site is a vast and airy space that, when complete, will reflect the curiosity, excitement and fun of CMOM and serve more than 750,000 visitors a year. We need your help to achieve our vision!
