At the North Country Children’s Museum, we believe that learning is a hands-on, minds-on, interactive experience. With exhibits that celebrate the cultural and geographical resources of the North Country, you’ll find play areas and tinker spaces for all ages to get kids thinking, making, and doing. Build and balance in our Construction Zone or run the store in our Kids Co-Op and Bakery. Explore the Raquette River in our Adirondack Water Play exhibit or light up your mind with our STEAM Power everbright art wall and engineering lab. Our Playspace, especially designed for crawlers, toddlers and preschoolers, gets little ones moving with sensory and imaginative play. Come play and learn with us!
What’s New at NCCM?
The Red Barn at 10 Raymond Street is the permanent home of the North Country Children’s Museum. In the heart of historic, downtown Potsdam, this exciting new space will open its door in Summer 2018. NCCM is working with professional exhibit design firm Alchemy Studios to create an innovative and engaging museum experience. Alchemy Studios has designed exhibits for nationally and internationally renowned museums including the Brooklyn Children’s Museum and the Smithsonian. To be a part from the start, you can donate to NCCM and support the museum as it’s built. Click the Support link to find more information on this and other ways to help NCCM grow.
In our permanent location, we offer special weekly programs like Adirondack Science, Ceramics, DNA modeling, Engineering, West African Drumming and other art, science, and cultural topics.
