Hours and Admission

Welcome Back!

Your health and safety are our top priority. In collaboration with an advisory council of scientists, physicians, and public health officials, we have implemented new policies and procedures to ensure a safe visit for your family. Learn more about our new procedures.

Admission

Advance tickets are encouraged for all visitors—including members, donors, and Access Pass holders. For your safety, we have limited our daily ticket reservations to up to 50% of maximum building occupancy.

Our daily General Admission ticket includes access to the museum, plus the Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience® (outdoor areas are seasonal).

We suggest buying online below or over the phone with Plan-Ahead Pricing. With Plan-Ahead Pricing, you can save up to 25% by buying your tickets at least 2 weeks in advance. Prices will always cost more the day of your visit, so buy ahead to save! Admission is free for visitors under 2 years old. The museum also offers free and discounted days throughout the year.

Peace of Mind Policy
We want you to feel as comfortable as possible when booking your visit. Any tickets that have not been used can be exchanged for a future date within this calendar year. The full value of your ticket will be applied to the purchase price of a new ticket of equal or greater value. Simply select another date and pay the difference, if any. If you’re not ready to select a future date, you can hold onto your ticket and apply the value toward another admission ticket or a membership at any time through Dec. 31, 2020. To exchange your ticket, please call the museum’s Customer Service Center at 800-820-6214 or email customerservice@childrensmuseum.org. We hope this allows you to continue planning your visit without concerns that your plans may change.

Group Visits

It's more fun when you bring everyone! If you're purchasing for a group of 20 or more, you receive a group rate.

Access Pass

We've joined forces with other local museums and cultural institutions to make fun family learning more accessible. General admission for Access Pass is $2 per qualifying member for admission to the museum and the Riley Children's Health Sports Legends Experience®.

First Thursday Nights

On the first Thursday of every month, we open our doors from 4-8 p.m. for just $6 admission per person.
