New Jersey Children's Museum

599 Valley Health Plaza
Paramus, NJ 07652


The Museum has over thirty different exhibits, in 15,000 square feet, each designed for specific groups, from the special Baby Nook and HOME Housekeeping for two's and toddlers, to the challenging Science and Technology for first graders.

You'll be dazzled by our newest exhibit. "Explore the World of Animal Senses", a state of the art interactive exhibit which delights and captivates all children. Using photo-transparencies, informative graphics, and fiber-optics, the exhibit explains everything from why your dog's eyes glow at night to how bats use sonar to track their prey.

Dad will love sitting in our Ahrens Fox Fire Truck while your children steer and ring the bell, dressed up in real fire gear.

The Kid Sized Grocery is a favorite place for children from toddlers to first grade - children play grocery shopping, filling little grocery carts, and checking out at a register. Then Mom and Dad can relax while your child serves up everything from pizza to fish and broccoli at the Kid-Sized Pizzeria.

FIRETRUCK PICTURE The Medieval Castle is a wonderful place for dress up as knights, princesses, fairies, and kings. Children can listen to a 6 foot tall Knight and hop aboard a kid-sized charger. Only kids can fit in the Special Throne Room.
