There’s something new to do every day at C’mon! The Museum is packed with 30,000 square feet of interactive exhibits. These 12 hands-on exhibits provide plenty of fun and learning.

There are many new activities every day. Check out our online calendar (link to calendar) to see what we are highlighting today. Plus, don’t forget we have exciting permanent exhibits and a traveling exhibit space, which is constantly changing.

C’mon is for the young and young at heart, but specifically, we target children from birth to age 14 and their families. Each of our exhibits, experiences and programs have been designed to engage a broad range of children’s ages and interests. Our Curious Kids exhibit is limited to children eight years and older with no adults allowed. Our ABC Toddler Lot exhibit is limited to children three years and younger with their caretaker allowed.

There is no exact answer to this question. It all depends on your child’s age and interests. First time visitors spend closer to four ours while out-of-town guests make us a destination for at least two days. We are a one-stop for family fun!

We ask that all children be accompanied by an adult. Any unaccompanied child will be escorted to the Welcome Center to remain there until a parent or caretaker is located. The child will not be allowed to leave the Museum until a parent or guardian picks up the child.

Arrive early to avoid crowds. Mornings are an excellent time for infant/toddler group play and for parents to socialize with other parents within the exhibits. During the school year, a visit after 1:30pm avoids school fieldtrip groups. Our busiest times happen during the weekend.

We ask that visitors do not bring food into the Museum. You may choose from a healthy and varied selection of food items in our Garden Café. We also ask visitors to not eat in the exhibit galleries. There are tables available in the Garden Café and outside in the Johnsonville Backyardville exhibit.

The Garden Café offers a number of dining choices, made with fresh ingredients and preservative-free breads: Ham, turkey and other cold sandwiches Chicken wraps Various salads Build your own ham/turkey lunches
