November is Build it Month, and Portland Children’s Museum is excited to start construction. All month long we are providing hands-on activities that aim to inspire the next generation of builders. From sand castles to city planning, discover the possibilities that live in your own two hands!

Single Day Camps are available for children age 5–7 years throughout the school year. Each day has a specific focus to guide the art explorations and activities in addition to lots of time in the Museum exhibits. 

Our newest exhibit, DreamScape, welcomes families to ask ‘what do dreams look, feel, and sound like’ as they explore and tinker with new and recycled materials. Children and adults alike will delight in recognizing everyday objects repurposed to evoke and reimagine dreaming.

A little girl was playing with a toy and a little boy went to grab it. His dad chimed in “we need to ask if we can have a turn.” He did and the girl agreed to share. The boy was so excited he hugged the girl. She ran up to her mom and told her what had happened. Her mom replied “ I saw. Is it okay that he hugged you?” The girl said, “ Yes, it made me feel kind.” We love seeing compassion fostered here at the Museum! What are you doing today to feel kind? .
