The Children's Museum in Easton is a children's museum in Easton, Massachusetts dedicated to educational, cultural, and social learning for children and families with a primary focus on children ages 1–8. It is located at 9 Sullivan Avenue in North Easton inside of a historic firehouse. The museum is three floors of different activities designed for interactive learning. It is also located close to Stonehill College.


The Children's Museum was started in 1986 by four Easton women, all mothers of young children in search of hands-on educational experiences for their children. The location at that time was a historic firehouse built in 1904. By 1986, it had not been a functioning firestation in decades, and the town of Easton had decided to sell it. The mothers proposed the museum to the town, and the vote went to selectmen. The vote passed, with the museum promising to donate $100,000 of its admission profits back to the town. The mothers had no corporate sponsors, so it took five years of fundraising acitivties through the community until the museum received enough support to open in 1991.

PBS Kids Tie-Ins

The museum has collaborated with WGBH Boston first having a ZOOM show tie-in and later using FETCH! with Ruff Ruffman. These collaborations are usually interactive science labs for children where they perform an experiment and learn the science behind it.
