Boston Children`s Museum

Founded in 1913 by a group of teachers in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood, the Boston Children's Museum began a "hands-on" tradition long before that phrase became commonplace. Today, after 90 years, the Museum exists to help children understand and enjoy the world in which they live.

Boston Children's Museum
Boston's best place for kids and the adults in their lives
Boston's Children's Museum was founded in 1913.
As early as 1913, it meant engaging youth in identifying and marking nature walks, preparing specimens, making clay and wax models for exhibits, and even attempting a working model of the metropolitan water system.
The 1920's and 1930's began an era of Museum sponsored clubs that gave children the opportunity to explore the unfamiliar with naturalist hikes and bus trips.
In the 1960's, Michael Spock (museum director 1962-85) led the institution in revolutionizing the traditional museum experience, getting objects out of cases and into children's hands in exhibit areas where children could interact, experiment, and follow their own curiosity. Hands-on learning is now a part of American education and we are proud to have had a "hand" in it from the beginning.
Today, after 90 years, the Boston Children's Museum exists to help children understand and enjoy the world in which they live. As an early museum experience for children, our environment is informal, but our purpose is serious. We want children to grow up feeling secure and self-confident with respect for others and the natural world. We encourage imagination, curiosity, questioning, and realism. We provide opportunities for new insights, involvement with the world and understanding of human differences with world-class exhibits and programs.

The Boston Children's Museum pioneered the concept of interactive exhibitions used widely in museums today. Designed and built in-house, exhibits from the Boston Children's Museum have been replicated at prestigious institutions throughout the world. Exhibits focus on early childhood development and have three themes: arts, culture, and science.
