The Children’s Museum of Northern Nevada located in Carson City is a place to explore, play, imagine and learn. Our museum is just five blocks from the Nevada State Capitol and across the street from the Nevada State Museum. You can even eat lunch here!

The Children’s Museum includes interactive exhibits for all ages that help to reinforce curriculum standards.

Nevada History Exhibit – Engage students with a Scavenger Hunt that looks at Nevada state history, symbols, counties, and politics. See how much there is to know about Nevada!

Archeological Dig - With a hard hat and protective goggles students pick and brush away stone to reveal bones and rocks in this authentic exhibit.

Grocery Store Check-Out – Students buy and sell grocery products to make a well-balanced diet. What a practical place to practice addition and subtraction.

Music Center – Reinforce music skills at the keyboard, or play on the “walk-on” piano

And Check Out ... Robotics, Magnetism, Dress Up, Doctor Exhibit and More!
