Fantastic museum designed especially for children. Exhibitions at the Children's Museum of the Arts are designed to create dialogue among museum visitors young and old. Each exhibition is selected to inspire children and their families in their art-making at CMA and beyond. Our goal is to create a safe environment for children to express themselves freely and to foster each child's confidence in his or her unique response to the artwork they see at CMA.
