UPDATE: May 5, 2020

Erie County, based on the guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Health, is moving into the yellow phase beginning at 12:01 a.m., Friday, May 8th. However, the expERIEnce Children’s Museum has decided to remain closed until further notice. Updates will continue to be posted. 

Please watch this recorded message to the community from the expERIEnce Children’s Museum Executive Director, Ainslie Brosig.

UPDATE: April 18, 2020

The expERIEnce Children’s Museum has made the difficult decision to remain closed to the public during the month of May as we wait for guidance from state public health authorities.

In effort to support families, we have created online learning resources for families to play together and to support learning at home. For these resources, please visit Parent Resources and the Children’s Museum’s Facebook Page

The Children’s Museum relies entirely on earned revenue, donor contributions and grants.  The majority of the Museum’s budget (65%) comes from admission, membership, program, and gift shop sales.

Please make a gift today to ensure the Children’s Museum can continue to support children and families?
