About

The Children’s Museum depends on earned income, visitors through the door, for 65% of its revenue. Reduction in visitation has resulted in the Museum's decision to change hours of operation to just weekends. New hours are as follows: Saturdays 9-5 pm and Sundays 12-5 pm. These hours will stay in effect until further notice. Visitors must continue to register in advance online and choose a 2-hour time slot to visit the museum. Keeping families and employees safe during this health crisis remains our top priority. We therefore launched reservation only sessions and limited our attendance capacity (17%) per session. This system is supporting safe and clean play.

The expERIEnce Children's Museum is a place that has been inspiring creativity and imagination in children for over twenty years. The museum is a non-profit organization located in the historic cultural district of downtown Erie whose entire mission is to provide a safe, family-centered educational experience that inspires creativity, exploration, and imagination through play, interactive exhibits, and innovative programming.

The museum is a place where children can race a boat, paint a painting, shop healthy, imagine a career, explore magnets and produce a play. Named Erie's Choice for Museum in 2018 and the past 5 years and Erie's Choice for the Best Place to have a Birthday Party in 2017, the museum welcomes over 60,000 guests annually. Three floors and a certified outdoor classroom including over 25 hands-on exhibits provide hours of fun for children ages 8 and under.
