Hours and Admission

IMPORTANT UPDATE TO MUSEUM HOURS
The Children’s Museum has decided to extend the temporary closure of the museum until further notice. The best thing we can do is follow the recommendations of the CDC and encourage you all to stay home, unless it is absolutely necessary to leave the house for food, required work, or medical appointments.

Admission

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 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 for spring or summer break visits 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
General admission for Access Pass is $2 per qualifying member for admission to the museum, or $2 for the Riley Children's Health Sports Legends Experience®, or $3 for both. Click here to see if you qualify.
