April is Locomotion Month at Portland Children’s Museum. This month we are celebrating the joyful play of movement of our bodies and things in the world around us.

Reserve your Spring or Summer weekday birthday party at the Museum between now and the end of April to receive 1/2 off the room rental. That's right – 50% off!

Ever wonder what your child can learn from playing in Water Works? Are you are curious about the Museum but haven’t had a chance to visit?

Museum members enjoyed an extra hour of creativity in Clay Studio this morning. Keep your eyes open for more events just for members coming in the future!

Direct message us your child's line drawing of their dream imaginary pet to be entered into our contest. The winning submission will be printed on t-shirts for our upcoming Vet for a Day event on May 20 as part of Pet Month sponsored by @banfieldpethospital. The contest runs through the end of April, and we can’t wait to see the submissions. Here are some example imaginary pets our guests created during our Artist in Residence program with Shannon Newby.
