Serving The Needs Of Children & Families As A Center For Learning & Discovery

Visit Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose where you can expect to test, crank, listen, prod and tinker. One of the largest museums of its kind in the nation, CDM's 150 interactive exhibits lead visitors to explore, understand and enjoy the world in which they live.

The striking 52,000 square foot purple building, designed by Mexico City-based architect Ricardo Legorreta, signals the purpose of Children's Discovery Museum to serve the needs of children, families and schools as a center for learning and discovery.

Encompassing the broad themes of community, connections and creativity, exhibits invite self-directed, open-ended explorations, while programs provide facilitated, focused, and sustained interactions.

Since opening in June, 1990, the Museum has welcomed over 5 million visitors and has offered new interactive exhibits each year that respond to children's diverse educational needs. With the addition of the West Wing in 1997, the Museum expanded its size by twenty percent.
