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.

Our Values

Each Child's Potential

The child’s potential inspires and guides us.

Engaged Communities

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.

Support Us

Louisiana can do better than our state’s 48th ranking in childhood wellbeing. But we need your help. Our work is made possible by people putting their concern into action through giving. Join us and change lives daily.


Do you like helping kids discover their immense potential? Then you’d be an amazing volunteer!
