Grandparents Day

Celebrate National Grandparent’s Day by bringing a special guest to The Children’s Museum of Cleveland.  Along with photo opportunities, we will compare games of today and yesterday, and create our own old fashioned toy.   Share this day with special people in your life.

All activities included with paid Museum admission or membership.

Plans Are Under Way For Our Future Home!

Plans for our future home in Midtown are underway. We will continue to serve you at our University Circle location (until Jan. 3, 2016) and our Museum Without Walls program.

Since purchasing the historic Stager Beckwith mansion in Midtown in December 2014, we’ve been collaborating with exhibit designers and early childhood stakeholders to create a Museum that brings adults and children together to learn through play. Our new 12,000-square-foot home will feature brightly-lit exhibits that cover all forms of play – spaces where children become scientists with air and water; kid-sized buildings where children can build, work and imagine they would live; and, an art room for younger children to tinker, draw and build. This is just the beginning!

As we make plans for our future home we will continue to serve you at our University Circle location and our Museum Without Walls program. Due to our lease not being renewed, we will close our University Circle facility at end of day on Sunday, Jan. 3, 2016. All programming and exhibits will continue at our current facility through that date. Starting in 2016, Museum Without Walls will bring our educational and entertaining programs to Northeast Ohio’s neighborhoods and will reflect the design and learning principles of the coming exhibits and future programs in the new museum.

To our valued members – we are providing you with several options for maximizing the remainder of your membership. Please visit for more information and to make your selection on the option that fits you best.

The future is bright for the Children’s Museum of Cleveland! We look forward to continuing to serve you and keeping you up-to-date on programs and exhibits at our current facility, through our Museum Without Walls program, and at our future Museum.
