Come Explore! 

The Mid-Hudson Children's Museum is the ideal destination for families with young children. We celebrate childhood and are proud to offer exhibits that get kids moving, exploring, building, pretending, collaborating, creating and discovering. Our exhibits focus on nature, science, literacy, art, music and community and allow children the opportunity to develop foundational learning skills.
