Monterey County Youth Museum, also known as “MY Museum,” was developed to provide an environment where curiosity and creativity flourish and both children and adults learn together through experience. Constructed as a microcosm of “what makes Monterey special”, this 8,500 square foot space is packed with a variety of hands-on exhibits, making each visit unique and exciting. Exhibits are geared toward children age 10 and under, but we welcome the whole family.
