Museum Policies

  • CMOM is bursting with fun, but short on space. Please leave your stroller at home, or bring one that easily folds.
  • CMOM does not have a cafeteria, and there is no food or drink allowed in the Museum. There are many family-friendly restaurants in the area and your admission stamp allows you to re-enter the Museum as many times as you like for the day.
