The Children’s Museum at La Habra opened in December 1977 and is located in a historic 1923 Train Depot. The museum features seven galleries and fourteen different hands on exhibits, many of which remain unique to the field today. There is also an outdoor dinosaur topiary and historic 1942 caboose. The Children’s Museum at La Habra shows how important play is to learning. Through play, children develop skills, express creativity, discover the larger world and learn to work with others.
The Children’s Museum features permanent exhibits that include:
Nature Walk: Touch taxidermy wild animals in an indoor setting.
Model Train Village: Watch five trains running through a miniature village. Interactive electronic games on the walls reflect transportation history.
