Please note that with the regional increase in cases of Covid-19, our concern is always the staff and kids who enjoy our facility. Visitors are strongly encouraged to wear a mask while in the facility.If you would like to visit during hours with more space to roam in the museum, we suggest visiting after 2 pm. Inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. Visitors to the expERIEnce Children’s Museum agree to adhere to our guidelines and voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.


The Journey to the New expERIEnce Children’s Museum Begins!

Construction has begun in the Outdoor Classroom as Phase 1 of the build begins. Phase 1 is estimated to finish Spring of 2023!

Please note that as construction continues, parking along the left side of 5th Street is no longer available in front of the museum. There is street parking on the North end of the 5th Street block where the museum is located. On the weekends, Erie Insurance graciously allows us to use their parking lot directly across from the museum. The museum is still fully operational and the front door is available via the sidewalk and new ramp installed to the left of the entrance.
