Join museum educators as we celebrate our newest exhibit - the BIG piano! Visitors will have the opportunity to create masterpieces on this larger-than-life musical instrument and explore wacky piano circuitry with Makey Makey!

Serving 64,000 guests annually, the entire mission of Children’s Museum is to provide a safe, family-centered educational experience that supports creativity, exploration, and imagination through play, interactive exhibits, and innovative programming.
Inspiring creativity, imagination, and discovery in children and families since 1995, the ExpERIEnce Children’s Museum began as a community project of the Junior League of Erie. During the early 1990s, the Junior League embarked on fundraising and the cultivation of relationships with community stakeholders. Through strategic partnerships and programs, the Children’s Museum has become a significant cultural asset and community hub of the city of Erie, providing inclusive family-oriented experiences designed to engage and inspire parents to be their child’s first teacher and children to become life-long learners.
