The Children’s Museum is much more than a space for children to play. It is a community resource of programs and activities, all built around learning through play and providing access for all children and their caregivers. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, our mission is facilitated by the support of our staff, board, and volunteers, along with the generosity of individual and corporate donations.

The Children’s Museum provides a safe and educational place to explore, learn, play and imagine while encouraging curiosity and creativity through hands-on programs and exhibits. The Children's Museum is located at 327 Broad Street downtown Lake Charles. Museum hours are Monday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1-5 p.m.  Admission is $9 for children and adults. Admission applies to all workshops and activities. Call 337-433-9420 or visit www.swlakids.org for a complete list of weekly activities, admission fees, memberships and birthday party information. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The Children's Museum is currently sending e-newsletters using Constant Contact.
