Online Admission


General Admission Ticket

General admission tickets include admission to one play session, either a morning session (9 am – 12 pm) or an afternoon session (1 pm – 4 pm).  The Museum is currently open from 9 AM - 4 PM Thursday through Monday (closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays). Tickets are good for three months from date of purchase. Tickets purchased in advance should be presented to our team at check-in.


Our current health and safety policy states that fully vaccinated guests are not required to wear a mask in our outdoors spaces. We are currently still requiring guests to wear mask in our indoor spaces to protect children under 12 who are unable to vaccinated at this time. Our staff continues to wear masks both inside and outside at all times.


Online Tickets are only valid at The New Children's Museum at 200 W. Island Avenue, San Diego, CA.
