Accessibility

The Children's Museum of Manhattan is a place for children of all abilities to play, explore and be themselves. We constantly strive to make CMOM as accessible as possible for children with disabilities and their families.

Subway: For an accessible subway station take the 1, 2 or 3 train to the 72nd Street (and Broadway) Stop. From there, either head 9 blocks north on Broadway or switch to the uptown bus M7 M11, or M104.

Bus: Take the M104 on Broadway; or take the M7 or M11 on Amsterdam Ave.; from the east side take the M79TH Street Crosstown or the M86TH Crosstown.

For additional MTA accessible information, visit http://www.mta.info/mta/ada.

The museum entrance has a ramp and a wheelchair lift. CMOM is accessible in all spaces and exhibitions except the lower level of the outdoor City Splash! exhibit. CMOM requires all strollers to be checked. If your child needs a stroller or similar support for medical reasons please inform the admissions desk.

If you have questions or concerns about your child’s specific needs, please contact us at access@cmom.org. Also see our tips for making your visit as enjoyable as possible.
