Description

The Children's Museum in Easton (CME) is an educational, cultural, and social learning center for children and families with a primary focus on children ages 1-8. We are located in a historic Old Fire Station in North Easton, Massachusetts. Our mission is to help children and families become lifelong learners, using hands-on experience as the key to stimulating curiosity and motivating learning. With 3 floors of interactive exhibits and over 100 programs that allow kids to explore the world around them, we offer something for everyone!

History

The Children's Museum in Easton was founded in 1986 by four Easton residents, all mothers of young children in search of hands-on educational experiences for their kids close to home. With overwhelming community support, broad volunteer assistance, and donations from area residents and businesses, the Museum opened in 1991.

We are the only children's museum between Boston and Providence with over 45,000 visitors annually. The Museum currently has over 800 member families and a mailing list of 17,000 families.
