The new children's museum


The New Children’s Museum is a new model of children’s museum whose mission is to stimulate imagination, creativity and critical thinking in children and families through inventive and engaging experiences with contemporary art. We believe all children should have access to the creative process and arts of the highest quality. We provide free and discounted admission through ongoing public programs like “Check Out NCM” library memberships, Target Dollar Second Sundays and Blue Star Museums. We also provide group visits for many children and families from diverse communities throughout San Diego County through our Title 1 Access program, pARTners in Creativity.
