The Children's Museum of the Arts is located in Manhattan, New York City, USA, in the museum-rich SoHo neighborhood. Founded in 1988 by Kathleen Schneider as an art outreach program, the Children's Museum of the Arts is one of the oldest children's art museums in the world and has been recognized for its collection of international children's art.
It is a museum designed for those from ten months to twelve years old.
The Children's Museum of the Arts had a challenge in securing a permanent location, and has had to move on several occasions before settling in its present location. Despite these challenges, the museum has been a success with locals and other visitors due to its family friendly content and in 2004 it was a finalist in the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation's search for organizations to be at the new World Trade Center site.
