A great destination for kids, the Children’s Museum of Manhattan emphasizes early childhood education, creativity, health and world cultures. Through a unique environment of interactive exhibitions, classes, workshops, performances and Museum-sponsored festivals, children have fun while getting inspired to learn about the world around them. But the kids aren’t the only ones who benefit: by watching their young’uns, parents come to a greater understanding about how children learn.

Museums & Galleries PlayWorks

This 4,000-square-foot exhibition designed for kids from infancy through preschool is based on the theory of learning through play. As such, there are five distinct areas (math, language, science, imagination, and physical/emotional strength) with multiple levels of interactive challenge. For example, in the language area, kids will feed words and letters to a talking dragon. In the science area, they'll see color and pattern formation through light cylinders.
