TypeAttraction
CategoryChildrens Museum
DescriptionSince it opened its doors in 1988, the Terre Haute Children’s Museum has been a fun and exciting destination for children and families, and our mission to “enrich our children's lives through the exploration of science and technology” is realized through hands-on experiences with a variety of exhibits.

On Sept. 24, 2010, the Museum moved from a 3,000-square-foot building to a new 26,000-square-foot facility located at the corner of 8th Street and Wabash Avenue in downtown Terre Haute, and since that time, we have welcomed more than 125,000 guests! In our new building, we are focusing our efforts on giving children exciting ways to learn about math, science, technology and health, and some of the exhibits that can be found in the new Museum include a two-story tree house, a dinosaur dig, an agriculture exhibit, a water table, health exhibits, and exhibits about airplanes and flight.

At first glance, the Museum appears to just be a building filled with fun hands-on exhibits – but we are so much more than that! We are a mission-driven non-profit organization, and our exhibits are just one component of our efforts. By giving kids opportunities to dig up dinosaur bones, play the role of veterinarian, create buildings with LEGOs and blocks and play with bubbles, we are planting seeds of interest in science, technology, engineering and math. We are inspiring our nation’s future doctors, scientists, mathematicians and engineers!

To learn more about our exhibits, programs and events, visit us online at www.thchildrensmuseum.com and like our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/terrehautechildrensmuseum. On our website you can also find information about renting a room or the whole Museum for your next birthday party or event, learn how you can put your name on the new Children’s Museum by sponsoring a brick or limestone, and find out more about purchasing a museum membership, which will give you free admission to the Terre Haute Children’s Museum and free admission to more than 290 science centers and museums around the world!
