Located in Downtown Evansville, Indiana, The Koch Family Children’s Museum of Evansville (cMoe) offers over 20,000 square feet of galleries and exhibits, housed in a beautiful historic Art Deco building once home to the public library. The mission of the museum is to spark the curious minds and imaginations of children and their families through dynamic exhibits, programs, and activities. Museum staff and supporters strive to meet that mission every day by encouraging young minds to explore all that cMoe offers and experience learning through play.

Children (and their parents) are encouraged to play hands-on with galleries and exhibits. Popular favorites include performing a play in the 5th Street Theater, splashing in the Wet Deck, climbing through Moe the two-story duck, playing the laser harp, acting like a booger in a giant nose, and chatting with the talking Mark Twain bust. cMoe is located within walking distance to downtown restaurants and other attractions.
