A Museum on a Mission
When you make a child’s potential visible, wonderful things happen. So we created a place where kids use play, shared exploration, and conversation to connect with the people and world around them. A place where kids can be the amazing humans they are. A place where wonderful things happen daily.
The LCM Vision
What you experience as a child shapes the adult you become. That means you can change a child’s entire trajectory by giving them access to safe, innovative, and educational play experiences. And that’s the stuff we live for. We’re here to show children they matter. We exist to strengthen and support families. And we’re going to have so much fun while we do it.
Each Child's Potential
The child’s potential inspires and guide us.
We’re committed to building stronger, connected communities through active engagement.
We value learning for ourselves, for children and for families.
A Dynamic Community
Our culturally rich, diverse and dynamic community belongs to all children.
Stewardship & Resilience
Stewardship and resilience inform our choices and decisions today to increase our capacity in meeting future challenges and opportunities.
LCM in City Park
After more than 30 years on Julia Street in downtown New Orleans, we’re taking it outside to City Park. Our park home was meticulously designed to be a social, cultural and learning resource for children and families. The Louisiana Children’s Museum’s campus serves all children and families in the Greater New Orleans region and beyond.
Do you like helping kids discover their immense potential? Then you’d be an amazing volunteer!
