Museum Without Walls Educational Program

The Westchester Children's Museum delivers a borad range of quality educational enrichment programs that leverage our hands-on, exploratory approach toward learning.  Museum Without Walls programs are presented at a variety of community centers, schools, libraries, and childcare centers throughout Westchester County.


For school age students, experiments range from unraveling the mysteries of DNA to building model solar cars.  Arts and music programs delve into issues of cultural diversity, history and local traditions.  Many of the activities are conducted with kids enrolled in afterschool programs at local community centers.  The opportunities available during these hours help to shape their knowledge, their world view, and ultimately, our future.   

Programs also address the needs and interests of early learners with age appropriate, fun, hands-on experiences that range from exploring Mother Goose rhymes to basic principles of simple machines.

Since the program began in 2010, we have engaged over 20,000 kids in learning experiences with over 50 partner organizaitons, including:
