The Children’s Museum at Saratoga is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which is supported by the generosity of the community, friends, members, and people who value the importance of play in a child’s developmental and educational growth.
The Children’s Museum at Saratoga is dedicated to creating an interactive community that inspires curiosity, sparks imagination and nurtures discovery.

Founded in 1990 by community parents & educators
The Children’s Museum has been a resource to the Capital Region for over 33 years! The Museum’s first home was in donated space at the Downstreet Marketplace building on Broadway in Saratoga Springs. It then rented space at 36 Phila Street in the fall of 1994. In November 2001 the Museum moved from Phila Street to 69 Caroline Street.
In 2021, the Museum began its next journey – moving to the Lincoln Baths building in New York’s Spa State Park in Saratoga. The new Museum is an invaluable resource to the people of Saratoga and the entire Capital Region, providing education and play opportunities for the children in our area.
Opened in July of 2022, the Museum features a larger space, new exhibits, interactives, classroom spaces, and access to the natural resources and amenities of the State Park.

Merging with The Children’s Museum of Science and Technology
In 2021 The Children’s Museum at Saratoga (CMAS) had a wonderful opportunity to affiliate with another Capital Region children’s museum, The Children’s Museum of Science and Technology (CMOST) (formerly located in the RPI Tech Park in Troy, NY). Sarah Smith, Executive Director of CMAS said, “This opportunity means the best of both Museums will be offered to children and families throughout the entire capital region”. Through this agreement, the wonderful Outreach Educational Programs from CMOST will now be offered through CMAS.
CMAS is thrilled to provide the best possible educational opportunities to all children in the Capital Region with new and improved outreach education programs. CMAS will offer outreach programs to school districts in 11 counties across the Capital Region and beyond.
