Introducing expERIEnce My Home, a New Little Video Series!
We’ve partnered with families from different cultures who now live in Erie. Each has captured video welcoming you into their home. Every Wednesday and Saturday at 9am beginning January 30th, we will share a video that introduces you to each of their cultures and lives. Meet kids from India, Puerto Rico, Congo, Syria, Nepal, Bosnia and Palestine!
expERIEnce My Home
Meet Imany, who was born in Bosnia. She shares her love of reading and making art, teaches us some Bosnian words, how to make Bosnian pastry, and demonstrates her prayer ritual. She also talks about her favorite parts of the Museum!
This project was funded by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and AHN-Saint Vincent Hospital. Support for this program is also provided from an Erie Arts & Culture Project Grant, made possible by community contributions to the United Arts Fund and the Erie Arts Endowment.

NEW ADMISSION PROCESS
The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our top priority. The new admission process we have put in place for our reopening was done so for the following reasons:
- Online reservations will allow for contact-free entry.
- Limiting the number of visitors at one time allows for recommended physical distancing. Each time slot will be limited to 75 visitors.
HEALTH POLICY AND CODE OF CONDUCT
All visitors at the time of reservation will be asked to review and accept a health policy and code of conduct, which can be reviewed here and at the time of reservation.
In effort so 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.
