Since opening its doors in 1986, the Louisiana Children’s Museum has been one of the city’s premier attractions for children. We welcome 147,000 visitors per year, engaging children, families, caregivers, and school groups in memorable interactive experiences designed to make learning fun.
The Museum’s 30,000 square feet of exhibit space and programs offer children a diverse set of activities that promote learning across many disciplines – from reading and math skills to architectural ideas and the nuances of grocery shopping – through interactive play. Whether they are learning what bones they use to ride a bike, alongside Mr. Bones or loading up a cargo ship in the Little Port of New Orleans exhibit, children take an active role in their own learning.
$8.50 per person, adults and children. LCM members and children under the age of one are admitted FREE. Adults must accompany children under 16 years. Handicap accessible.
