Published Research, Evaluation Reports, and Publications

The Children’s Museum of Manhattan partners with leading academic, research, community-based, and government organizations to translate the latest findings on child development into exhibits, programming and resources that captivate, educate and delight children and adults of all backgrounds. Although our work begins at the museum, it can be seen engaging children, and those who care for them, at schools, libraries, homeless shelters and Head Start centers throughout New York City.
