All Museum programs are currently postponed for the health and safety of our guests.

With the emergence of the COVID-19 virus, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend discontinuing large gatherings. Doing so can slow the rate of transmission, lowering the number of active cases at one time. This can help us avoid overwhelming the healthcare system. For a more detailed explanation, please visit It is our hope that we will be able to reschedule the event later in season.

The Children's Museum of NJ is volunteer-run and only open
on select weekends that appear in the schedule below.
No one is available at the Museum at other times.

Now that you've come through our front door it only seems fair to tell you a little bit about us...

The Children's Museum was incorporated as a non-profit corporation in November, 1996 with the goal of improving the quality of life for children and their families through the creation and operation of a children's museum in Somerset County. Through educational exhibits and programs, we hope to inspire every child's natural curiosity and creativity, and to nurture a love of learning. We also hope to showcase the talents of young adults in our county. You are looking at one example of this right now! This web page was initially created by Todd Ogin and Graeme Blair, students in Montgomery Middle School.

The Children's Museum has rented office space in The PeopleCare Center, 120 Finderne Avenue, Bridgewater (just south of Rt 28).

If you would like to contact us for more information, please call us at 908-725-4677 or e-mail us at Thanks for visiting us. Spend some time and come again, as we periodically update our latest schedule of events!
