The Children's Museum

The Children's Museum
311 Main Street

Central New York's only Children's Museum is permanently chartered by the Board of Regents of New York State. We are passionately committed to providing a hands-on safe environment for children, families, and groups who visit. Our 4 floors of exhibits provide an enjoyable educational experience for kids from 1 to 101 to learn, experience, & create. In 2007, our building was declared a NYS & Federal historic building.

We are located in the historic Main Street district of downtown Utica between majestic Union Station and Bagg's Square Memorial Park, home of Bagg's Tavern, originally a log house founded in 1794 by Moses Bagg. Guests included General George Washington, General Lafayette, Henry Clay, and General Grant. The location, near the ancient fording place of the Mohawk River and the sites of Old Forts Schuyler and Stanwix, houses the only permanent exhibit of the history and origins of the MohawkValley.
