Welcome to the National Children's Museum Web Site!

Scheduled to open in 2009, the National Children's Museum will be a vibrant new child-centered museum in Washington, DC where exhibits and programs will open a window on the world of Washington serving local, regional, national and international audiences.

Building upon the Capital Children's Museum's 30 years of experience, the National Children's Museum is foreseen as a place that reaches beyond traditional borders. We will collaborate in partnership with other institutions that serve children, families and educators, facilitating experiences through which all our visitors can learn by themselves and from one another.

The Capital Children's Museum closed permanently on August 22, 2004 so that we could begin full-time development of the National Children's Museum. Please check back here regularly for updates on our progress or sign up below to receive our e-newsletter.
