Boston Children’s Museum (BCM) was founded in 1913 by teachers interested in innovative learning opportunities. BCM has become one of the most influential children’s museums in the world. We are an internationally recognized leader in creating exhibits that engage children in joyful discovery experiences, developing foundational skills that instill a lifelong love of learning. Each year the Museum welcomes more than 500,000 visitors.

The Museum’s exhibits and programs emphasize hands-on engagement and learning through experience, employing play as a tool to spark the inherent creativity, curiosity, and imagination of children. Designed for children and families, Museum exhibits, programs, and activities focus on science, literacy, culture, environmental awareness, health & fitness, and the arts. The Museum is also one of the few children’s museums in the world to maintain a collection. The Museum’s collections of Americana, Natural History, Global Culture, Native American, Dolls and Dollhouses, and Japanese artifacts encompass more than 50,000 items.
