About Us

Our Mission:
To encourage enthusiasm about learning in a hands-on environment that opens the world even to the youngest child.

The Children's Museum at La Habra opened in December 1977 & is located in a historic 1923 Train Depot. It features 7 galleries and 14 different hands on exhibits, many of which remain unique to the field today. In addition to these exhibits, outdoor dinosaur topiary & historic 1942 caboose, the Museum features an exhibit which changes 4 times a year. The Children's Museum at La Habra was the first children's museum to open west of the Rocky Mountains, & was one of only a few such museums to open on the West Coast during the 1970s. The Children's Museum welcomes local, national & international visitors. Children can ride a kid-size carousel, take a walk in T-Rex's footprints, pet an Arctic fox, pump gas, drive a bus, dress up & perform, & dig for fossils all in one afternoon!

The Children's Museum at La Habra shows how important play is to learning. Through play, children develop skills, express creativity, discover the larger world and learn to work with others.

We appreciate the commitment & support from the City of La Habra, Friends of the Children's Museum, Board of Directors, Museum Staff, Museum Guild, Advisory Board, Docents, Volunteers and Donors who work hard to help ensure the long-term continuity of the Children's Museum at La Habra.
