Hours & Admission

Reservations Required

The Children's Museum of Cleveland offers timed ticket sessions and guided rentals. Attendance is limited and reservations are required for all visitors (Members and Non-Members.) Reservations can be made online at the ticketing links below. 

We're Adjusting Pricing on October 1st 

To maintain the quality you know and love, CMC will be increasing admission and membership prices on October 1st. This will allow us to provide equitable wages with the rising cost of living, and support the inflation in operating costs. Lock in the current membership rate by purchasing or renewing your membership by September 30th.
