Bring the family and tour our latest exhibits including “It’s a Nano World” and “Framed: Step into Art.” Meet the animals of our Wildlife Sanctuary, take in our spectacular planetarium shows, and learn about all we have to offer year round – including interactive labs, workshops, multi-sensory exhibits and demonstrations, state-of-the art digital science dome planetarium shows and movies, vacation camps, sleepovers, birthday parties, scout activities, and special events.

The New Children’s Museum continues its legacy as a premier STEAM education center integrating science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Home to over 100 live animals, the Museum features hands-on science exhibits, out-of-this-world digital planetarium shows, and programs for young children and families. The New Children’s Museum and Roaring Brook Nature Center are the region’s premiere destinations for science and nature exploration.
