Welcome to the Louisiana Children's Museum
2020 CHAIRish The Children
A Fall Feast Celebrating New Orleans Saturday, October 3, 2020
Due to current challenging times, the 22nd Annual CHAIRish the Children will be a different experience. It will not take place at LCM, rather, it will take place any place you see fit – in a safe, physically-distanced fashion! Click on the link below for more information.
LCM will shift focus to offsite programs Monday, August 17
We have made the difficult decision to shift its focus to virtual and offsite programs beginning Monday, August 17, postponing daily museum visits until families are more confident about the health of the community. For more information on our closure, please click on the link below.

World's Biggest Classroom
Turns out, nature is the best place to learn about nature. So we created acres of interactive outdoor space for eye-opening exploration of the fragile wetlands we call home.
When you make a child's potential visible, wonderful things happen.
