In an effort to help children see learning as fun, the Children's Museum of Phoenix offers exhibits, events, and programs to delight children of all ages. The exhibits in the museum stimulate the mind, muscles, and imaginations of little visitors. The exhibits are mostly hands-on and target the learning styles of children aged birth through ten years. The museum may make children think they are playing, but all the while learning is taking place. The museum is located in downtown Phoenixe at the corner of 7th Street and Van Buren in the Monroe School Building. The goals of the museum are to educate parents and caregivers about the normal developmental and learning phases of children, to build a cultural understanding for young children, and to provide a variety of engaging projects and exhibits. The museum is a great place to hold a kid's birthday party of special event and birthday packages come in a variety of price ranges. There are three packages from which to choose that include activities, food, and fun. Budget conscious parents will love visiting the museum on the first Friday of each month when admission is free from 6 pm until 9 pm. This makes the museum accessible for children and families who may otherwise not get to enjoy the fun.
