CuriousCity believes an accessible and inclusive museum must address each visitor’s experience.


CuriousCity is a children’s museum presented by the Peabody Cultural Collaborative. CuriousCity features hands-on exhibits designed to be accessible and inclusive for children ages 2-10.

A limited number of tickets are available and must be purchased in advance. Join us for a whole lot of fun! Saturday, March 28th 7-10pm

We are “wild” about CuriousCity turning One and we invite you and your family to the celebration! Join us for crafts, magician, touch a truck, treats, drumming circles and more. A limited number of tickets will be sold each hour to ensure your family has ample time to enjoy the festivities! Sunday, March 29th 10-2pm


Each hands-on experience in CuriousCity explores different themes to tap into a child’s imagination. From building and designing to investigating new materials to reading and engaging in dramatic play, learning has never been so fun!

“A museum provides the perfect addition to downtown. It is the type of destination business that has the ability to provide education and entertainment to residents and visitors while generating business for existing restaurants and other complimentary businesses. While there are other children’s museums in Massachusetts, it would be a unique addition to the North Shore.”

- Mayor Bettencourt
