Programs for Kids
At Cincinnati Museum Center, we're sure to have a program your child will love, regardless of age, interest or style of learning.
Our programming is multi-disciplinary (like us), and focuses on everything from art and culture to science, history and technology. Try one, or try them all.

KidSPACE in The Children's Museum offers regular programs centered on making and creating.

Children need at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day. Get movin' at a Dance Party to get physically active, stay fit and have fun!
Get started in STEM, or go deeper than you have time for in school, by visiting the museum's STEM Lab. The lab's amenities include a fume hood and gas connection, which allows for explosively interesting chemistry demonstrations, touchscreen televisions and a ton of space to test your own mad methodology.
Explore science, technology, history and the arts through creative, hands-on activities and games at our fun and educational Museum Camps.
Bring your little ones to The Children's Museum at 10:30 a.m. every Thursday as we play, dance, sing and listen to a new story each week!
