Louisiana Children's Museum - New Orleans City Park

Louisiana Children’s Museum

After more than 30 years on Julia Street in downtown New Orleans, the Louisiana Children’s Museum (LCM) opened its doors in City Park in 2019. The Museum was meticulously designed to be a social, cultural and learning resource for children and families. Indoors and out, there are tons of hands-on ways to learn literacy, health and wellness, arts and culture, environmental education, and STEM.


There are a bajillion paths to take through LCM. But the easiest way to plot a course is to choose the exhibits you want to see or the things you want to learn. Walk through the reeds or brush up on your reading. Learn the songs of this city or make your own music. The world is your oyster. Hey, you can learn about those too!

The Louisiana Children’s Museum is its own 501c3 non-profit managed and operated independent of City Park Conservancy.
