We Are Building for the Future!

The Westchester Children’s Museum broke ground in early March on the renovation and capital improvement of its historic landmark building. The infrastructure improvement project planned by the Museum converts the entirety of the site to a soaring, sunlit year-round facility that provides incredible opportunity for hands-on exhibits and STEAM programming not found anywhere else in the region. The undertaking increases available operating space from the current 6,500 square foot Hoch Laager Boardwalk Galleries to 22,000 square feet and will allow for up to 250,000 children per year! The Museum’s current operating space will remain open throughout the construction period

did you know…the home of the Westchester Children’s Museum was originally built in 1928 as a summer seasonal structure for beachgoers to change into swimsuits? Our current construction project will transform the space into a year round interactive education Center
