What We Do

The mission of Providence Children's Museum is to inspire and celebrate learning through active play and exploration. The Museum welcomes children and adults of all backgrounds and from all communities. The focus is on serving the children of southern New England and the adults who care for them by presenting hands-on exhibits and programs that explore the arts, culture, history and science.

Its exhibits and programs are based on the developmental needs of children ages one to eleven and embrace a wide range of learning styles and forms of expression. The Museum is committed to being accessible and responsive to all families -- culturally, physically and economically; to working in partnership with schools, child welfare agencies and other organizations to meet the needs of children and families; and to increasing understanding of the ways in which children learn. The Children's Museum is one of the few places where children and adults have the opportunity to learn together. Its participatory approach to education encourages a life-time love of learning.
