Description :

The Children's Museum of the Arts is located in Manhattan, New York City, USA, in the museum-rich SoHo neighborhood. It is a museum designed for those from ten months to twelve years old. Founded in 1988 by Kathleen Schneider as an art outreach program; the Children's Museum of the Arts is one of the oldest children's art museums in the world and has been recognized for its collection of international children's art. As is the case with many museums in Manhattan, the Children's Museum of the Arts had a challenge in securing a permanent location, and has had to move on several occasions before settling in its present location.
