MUSEUM CLOSURE DURING COVID-19
April 29,2020 Update
The Children’s Museum of Phoenix has extended its closure until further notice. We continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis and we will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on plans and procedures for reopening, following state and public guidelines to keep everyone safe and healthy.

The Museum is a PAL Place!
Partners to Assist in Learning (Pal) and the Children’s Museum of Phoenix have partnered to create a custom Pal Video and digital, mobile-friendly Pal Guide to support visitors with autism, anxiety, and other learning differences. Becoming a “Pal Place”, means that we’re taking steps to offer custom resources that support our visitors with what is sometimes referred to as “non-visible” disabilities, like autism. Check out the video!
Free & Discounted Admission
Please note: We only accept original admission coupons issued by the Museum and do not accept photocopies.
Every Child Program
The Children’s Museum of Phoenix, as a service to community members of the City of Phoenix, provides free or reduced admission access to approximately 50,000 people each year through the Museum’s Every Child Program.

The program allows low-income or at-risk children and families to access the Museum’s rich learning environment and experience programs and exhibits that reach out to any audience.
The Every Child Program is made possible through the support of generous individuals, corporations, and foundations. The program is partially funded through a generous grant from
