Boston Children's Museum, in a 19th-century brick-and-timber wool warehouse, is a kid's delight, for this is where the whole idea of "hands-on" interactive exhibits began.



The Boston Children's Museum is in the Seaport District just across Fort Point Channel from South Station and the Financial District (map). (Subway: Red Line to South Station)

Kids from infants through preschoolers to early adolescents will find exhibits to entertain, educate and delight them, from a completely padded and carpeted infants' area to art rooms, climbing structures, hands-on science experiments, interactive displays featuring Boston's famous Blue Man Group, and plenty more.

The museum is not just for fun. This is a place where children will learn all sorts of things, and enjoy learning.

The Boston Children's Museum is a delightful place. Designed by famed Boston architect Peter Kuttner and his colleagues at Cambridge Seven Associates, the museum incorporates both the historic brick wool warehouse (1888) and 21st-century design elements, features and conveniences.

Overlooking Fort Point Channel and the Financial District, the redesigned museum takes full advantage of its waterfront location.

Boston's HarborWalk passes the front of the museum, where trees, tables and benches serve patrons of the Au Bon Pain restaurant located in the museum building.

It's a delightful place!

Take an MBTA subway Red Line train to South Station, and follow the signs to Museum Wharf (map).
