The New Children's Museum
The New Children’s Museum celebrated the opening of its new home located in downtown San Diego’s Marina District with a free, community block party on May 4, 2008.
The Museum, an environmentally sustainable building designed by architect Rob Wellington Quigley, provides a dynamic, playful public space and community center for children and families—a place to experience exciting art exhibitions, hands-on studio projects, performances, birthday parties, in-depth classes, camps and educational programs.
Across the street from the new building is a beautiful park, extending the museum visit outdoors with space for running, climbing, family picnics and a view of the trains and trolley going by.
Located at 200 West Island Avenue, the Museum faces Harbor Drive and is well-positioned near the MTS Convention Center Trolley stop, Seaport Village and the Gaslamp Quarter, making it easily reachable to residents and visitors throughout the region.
Members Only Time: Sundays from 9:30-11 a.m.
Adults and children over 1: $14
Seniors (65+): $10
Children under 1: FREE
