Fun Animal Fact Friday!
The mission of CMOST is to instill a sense of wonder and discovery in young minds, inspiring a lifelong exploration of science and technology.
Our founders from the Junior League of Troy decided to create a museum specifically for children. Instead of having a “look but don’t touch” rule to the exhibits like most museums, the Junior Museum encouraged children to please touch its exhibits. True to our beginnings, all of our exhibit experiences continue to be designed with science discovery and play in mind. Why? Because discovery and play aren't just about entertainment, they are essential learning tools. Children learn about themselves, their environment, people and the world around them all through play. Our discovery environment provides children with the opportunity to investigate, observe, analyze, and build in a pressure-free setting. By allowing children to choose the activities and exhibits with which they wish to interact, you motivate them to keep engaging and discovering the world around them, and you help them develop a disposition for learning.

Chartered by the Board of Regents on behalf of the NYS Education Department in 1954, the Children’s Museum of Science and Technology (CMOST) is the Region’s only science center designed specifically for children. In pursuit of our mission, CMOST provides an engaging, child-directed learning environment which enables children to learn and grow through play. Designed for children ages 18 months through the tween years, the Museum enables children to investigate, observe, analyze, and build in a pressure-free environment by pairing innovative educational tools and techniques with engaging exhibits and facilitated programming to support active learning. CMOST offers a unique suite of STE(a)M learning experiences including school and community programs; workshops; summer and vacation day camps; camp-ins; and daily Museum Educator facilitated activities that help children make important connections between science, the world and everyday life. Beyond the Museum, CMOST’s Traveling Programs feature hands-on STE(a)M activities, turning classrooms, libraries and community centers into learning labs.
