Let Us Introduce to You…. our FUTURE Home

Imagine a historic mansion, saved from an unknown future and turned into a place filled with light, laughter and learning for young children. Imagine expanded space for programs and events, larger exhibits, ample and free parking, and easy access from all around the Stager-Beckwith House Photoregion. Imagine the Musuem anchoring an Early Childhood Education Corridor where other public and private organizations working in early childhood development are collaborating to have greater impact on our community’s children, parents and caregivers.

This is the FUTURE of The Children’s Museum of Cleveland, as we’ve just completed the purchase of a historic Millionaire’s Row mansion in Midtown (the neighborhood between Playhouse Square and University Circle.) When transformed into our future Museum, this mansion will be the first permanent home we’ve had in our 32-year history.

Our planning is underway as a team of exhibit designers and early childhood experts are already working on exhibit designs for the new Museum. Stay tuned for more information as we plan for updated and innovative interpretations of our most popular current exhibits, such as the water area and climbing structure.

Of course, there’s much work to do before these future plans become our reality. So keep visiting and enjoying our beloved Museum in University Circle. We’ll remain open in our current location at 10730 Euclid Avenue until the summer of 2015. And we’ll keep in touch with our members and visitors to share the exciting plans and timing we have for moving to the Midtown property and the future home of The Children’s Museum of Cleveland.
