Children's Museum of Science and Technology

250 Jordan Road, Troy, NY 12180 - United States





Chartered by the Board of Regents on behalf of the NYS Education Department in 1954, 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.


At CMOST, our hands-on exhibits are used as a catalyst for exploring, discovering and imagining the world of science and technology.

For the security of our young visitors, all adults must be accompanied by a child. Adults are welcome to visit on a guided tour. Please call ahead at 518-235-2120 to arrange for a tour.

Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
