Children’s Room at the Carnegie Center

The Children’s Room at the Carnegie Center is currently closed. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the center is being thoroughly cleaned and sanitized according to the protocol from our partners at the Lorain County Health Department.

About the Children’s Room…

The Children’s History Room features interactive replicas of Lorain landmarks including the historic Bascule Bridge and a lake freighter.  When available, this room is open to the public on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 – 3 and is staffed by a qualified educator.  Children can enjoy creative play opportunities as well as reading books on bridges, ships, the lighthouse and Lorain history. (Please Note: The Children’s Room will not re-open until after Labor Day.)

Small group visits are available by pre-registration.  Teachers, parents and interested adults can contact Jenn at 440-245-2563 or email [email protected] for more information on dates and cost.

PLEASE NOTE: We require that children be accompanied by an adult for the duration of their visit. An hour of creative play is available for a fee of $5 for one child or $10 for 2 – 3 children (no additional fee for the adult).

Do You Know How to Make Solar S’mores??

Our Summer Campers learned that and more during our fun and educational mini camps! This summer, due to Covid-19, we reinvented our summer camp, and limited each session to a family group or a friends group, and it was a great success! Shortly after we opened registration, all 30 of our sessions were filled, and we thank all of the families who joined us for a 2-hour camp.

We will be posting information about our fall classes for children on our website, our e-news, and our social media sites, so stay tuned!


To register for camp, or if you have additional questions, contact Jenn, our Children’s Education & Curriculum Coordinator, Tuesday through Thursday.
