ExpERIEnce Children's Museum – Erie, PA

Create. Explore. Imagine. PLAY!

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.

Mask Policy Update:

As of March 1st, universal indoor masking is no longer required by all children (ages 2 and older), staff, and visitors at the expERIEnce Children’s Museum. Those who are not vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear a mask while in the facility. This policy will be in effect for all other events and programming, including classes and camps.

This decision follows the updated CDC Guidelines as of 2/25/22 and regional school masking policies. We will continue to monitor these updates and COVID positivity rates in the region.

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.
