Connecticut Children's Museum

Children's Building 22 Wall Street


The Connecticut Children's Museum building houses three programs, interwoven in purpose and philosophy: Creating Kids Child Care Center, Creating Curriculum Child Care Provider Training Program and the Connecticut Children's Museum itself. Each is inspired by the Theory of Multiple Intelligences, articulated by Harvard psychologist, Howard Gardner. This is a rich and resourceful, cutting edge educational theory, which recognizes the multiplicity of children's intelligences and honors the different ways children learn.

Children need a place of their own where they can experience the magic and wisdom of learning at their own pace by interacting with exhibits that are full of whimsy and wisdom, in spaces built to their size and specifications.

Early childhood educators, working in a myriad of programs throughout the city and its suburbs, need a place to bring their children and a place where they can find support and inspiration.

Families need a place of full of color, joy and community where they can play and learn together.

The Connecticut Children's Museum is designed to be such a place.

We took a few classes from the elementary school I work at and they loved it. They had so much fun It was hard to make them leave.

It is amazing fact that we have this wonderful Children's fun place in downtown New Haven. Cute looking outside, thoughtful management. I hope we could more advertising this place as our hidden treasures.

Really neat place. Historic building and fun interactive exhibits for the kids. A little pricey but worth the visit for sure.

Children are too good to play and educational.There is also an elevator. However, it is doubtful whether there is a parking space. I parked on the street, but I felt overburdened. There was no staff inside so there was also a cluttered space.

The museum is broken up into different rooms,each focusing on a different learning style. My children enjoyed their time there. It was not as engaging for me as other museums, but then again, it is a children's museum
