Exhibit galleries include: Early Learning Junction, Rivertown, The Science Center @ MHCM, Imagination Playground, My Backyard Adventure, and The Children’s Garden @ MHCM.

The Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum is an independent 501(c)3 not-for-profit educational organization that is supported by admission and membership sales, program fees, donations, and grants.
