About the Children’s Museum In December 2017, the Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM) purchased a landmark building at 361 Central Park West which is scheduled to become the museum’s new home in 2023. This is a time of unprecedented growth for the institution that will ultimately yield the first new museum, and one solely dedicated to children and families, on Central Park in more than fifty years. CMOM is currently in the quiet phase of a capital campaign and also building capacity in preparation for its future business model.
