New Children's Museum Tours
Read MoreShow Less
San Diego County is home to more than 90 museums, but the New Children’s Museum (NCM) downtown is a top choice among many families. Every visit brings the opportunity for kids to create something different. With three floors of hands-on activities, craft projects, and play areas, art is constantly being created. Kids are encouraged to roll of their sleeves and create a masterpiece.
In addition to performances and seasonal events, NCM runs a number of regular continuing programs including Toddler Time on the second Friday of the month and Finger Painting Friday on the fourth Friday of the month. NCM is across the street from Children’s Park, offering easy access to a nice spot for kids to run around and let off some steam.
NCM is open Wednesday through Monday and located near the Gaslamp Quarter, between Union and Front Streets. NCM offers limited parking in their garage for $10. Metered parking is also available in the neighborhood along with other public parking lots.
Address: 200 W Island Ave, San Diego, California 92101, USA
