San Luis Obispo Children’s Museum – San Luis Obispo, California

The San Luis Obispo Children’s Museum inspires learning through play within a rich environment of interactive exhibits and programs in the arts, sciences and humanities. Since opening in 1990, we have been committed to offering experiences that both invoke curiosity and imagination about the world and promote active exploration, investigation and creation. Learning becomes fun because it is motivated from within and shared with others.

The museum is proud to offer thousands of children, families, caregivers and teachers a variety of educational experiences that enrich their lives. We hope that you will enjoy the San Luis Obispo Children’s Museum for years to come.
