Description

The New Children's Museum is a new model of children's museum whose mission is to stimulate imagination, creativity and critical thinking in children and families through inventive and engaging experiences with contemporary art. To address a critical need in our society and become a leader in engaging children through contemporary art in order to develop the skills needed for the 21st century.

The New Children’s Museum unlocks children’s innate creativity by exposing them to art and the creative process. The original Museum opened in 1983 in La Jolla as the Children’s Museum/Museo de los Niños, and moved to a downtown warehouse in 1993. In 2008, the Museum reopened as The New Children’s Museum – with the word “new” signifying their focus on commissioning contemporary artists to create full scale art installations for children to engage with and explore. The Museum is housed in a dynamic space designed by visionary and award-winning architect Rob Wellington Quigley and is one of the first green museums in California. In 2018, the Museum is celebrating 35 years in San Diego and 10 years as The New Children’s Museum.
