Weekends are “wonder-filled” at the Children’s s Museum of Acadiana

Beginning this week, the CMA will temporarily transition to weekends only as a step towards consolidating resources to remain viable for long term sustainability.  As many of CMA employees are parents themselves, safety continues to be the museum’s top priority. In fact, visitors must make advance reservations, and only 80 guests are allowed per 2.5 -hour session — that’s just 25% percent of the capacity.   View all protocols for keeping “learning by doing” safe on the next slide.

The Children’s Museum of Acadiana is a nonprofit organization that receives NO government funding except as periodically awarded grants which means we rely on our guests and supporters like you to keep the doors open and lights on!

We would be lying if we said the Museum hasn’t taken a financial hit from the pandemic – 2020 has been the most challenging year since the CMA opened. Since 1996, the CMA has provided children, their families, and educators a creative environment with interactive exhibits and programs. With your purchase of a CMA gift card the Museum you contribute to the CMA’s effort to navigate through these challenging times so that the Museum continues to delight children and their caregivers for decades to come.
