What is there to do?

At the Children’s Creativity Museum, they love to go beyond the conventional environment of play by inspiring kids to imagine, create and share in their hands-on and interactive multimedia environment!

With every visit to this San Francisco favorite, kids walk away with a unique media or art project that reflects and celebrates their creativity.

Children’s Creativity Museum is a hands-on, multimedia arts and technology experience for kids, which is very cool. They envision a world where the 3Cs of 21st-century literacy – Creativity, Collaboration and Communication – inspire new ideas and innovative solutions.

Throughout the museum there are a number of exhibits that teach kids something different at each one, including Animation, Design, Music, Innovation, Imagination and Community.

In the Community Lab, kids can draw their own buildings and vehicles in Sketch Town, and interact with their own creations, teaching kids about building healthy communities and urban planning. 

In the Animation Studio, both kids and adults have a blast learning the basic skills of stop-motion animation, by creating their own clay characters and bring them to life on screen!

The Music Studio allows kids to sing songs with friends, and yes even adults can get into character (or just be themselves!) as you perform in front of a green screen. 

The Innovation Lab is where the imaginations run wild! Do you need a machine that can finish your homework? Or perhaps you want to move water to Mars? This area is where kids can invent anything they want! But how can they build it? That's another challenge!

Children's Creativity Museum is where kids can CREATE! Use those imaginations, be themselves, express themselves and be inspired.

Now kids, the biggest question is, what will inspire you today?

Located next to the museum, the Children’s Creativity Store carries a wide selection of toys, games, books, and other items to spark the imagination. Offerings include marionettes, masks, stuffed creatures, and arts and crafts projects from around the world. The Store also carries goods that feature the Creativity Critters. T-shirts, tote bags, and stickers are just a few of the items starring Zump, the Birdles, and the rest of the gang, allowing you to continue to create with the Critters from the comfort of your own home!

Need a little extra help?

For visitors with limited mobility or strollers, take the ramp up (on the right side of the Children’s Creativity Carousel, facing 4th and Howard Streets), which will lead to the Museum’s main entrance. If an elevator is required, you may also enter at 4th and Folsom Streets (near the Childcare Center). Take the elevator to the 2nd level and follow the walkway to the Museum.
