About the Children's Museum
Since 1981, the Children's Museum has provided interactive programs, exhibits, and services for children that integrate early childhood development, parent education, and literacy. As the first cultural organization that many children visit, CMoR creates innovative learning experiences for all children and complements the educational efforts made in school systems, child care centers, and homes. Since its inception, nearly three million children, ages 0-8, and their families from Richmond and throughout Virginia have explored interactive, educational experiences that have stimulated their interest in art, science, and the humanities.
CMoR special events throughout the year that highlight the diversity of the Richmond community and celebrate cultural traditions, in addition to promoting school readiness through museum education. The Museum also has a strong commitment to accessibility for children from underserved communities and those with disabilities. As a not-for-profit organization, CMoR continually breaks down financial barriers to make sure all families have the opportunity to learn and play at its locations in Downtown Richmond and Chesterfield.
