About The New Children's Museum

The New Children’s Museum is a new model of children’s museum whose mission is to stimulate imagination, creativity and critical thinking in children and families through inventive and engaging experiences with contemporary art. Its building, located in downtown San Diego, opened in 2008 and is one of the first green museums in California. Visionary and award-winning architect Rob Wellington Quigley created our dynamic space, full of natural light and fresh air. The dramatic, multi-level 50,000 square-foot building includes a series of transparent, flexible spaces which visibly expose the building’s construction and design.
