Welcome to The New Jersey Childrens Museum

Dear Friends,

After 23 years of joy and learning and delighted hands-on play for toddlers and preschoolers,
the New Jersey Children's Museum will be closing forever on Labor Day, Sunday, September 1, 2014.

We've loved watching you play and learn and laugh with your children!

Come visit one last time before we close! Say goodbye to the staff and take photos of your child in the kid-sized grocery store or drawing a cave painting in the prehistoric cave, or dancing or building or dressing up in costume! Fantastic photos of your happy children playing, guaranteed!

Everything in the Gift Shop is 1/2 price, so come do your holiday shopping now! Everything must go!

We will sell all the exhibits and costumes and furniture in early September.

Check back at for more information about New Jersey's greatest (and most interesting) virtual garage sale! We'll be selling everything from Ahrens-Fox open cab Fire Truck (stored inside for 20 years!), or a gigantic dollhouse, or fun mirrors, or maybe just some wonderful toys and Princess costumes, all perfect for preschools or daycare centers or church schools, or just your own home playroom!

The New Jersey Children's Museum is a great place to celebrate your child's birthday party! Toddlers and preschoolers love the interactive, hands-on exhibits, including a real fire truck, a real helicopter, cool fossil/dinosaur cave, play ballet studio, kids' medieval castle, and much, much more. Ask about special party activities, special birthday favors, and fun birthday party themes!
