The Children's Museum of History, Natural History & Science, better known as the Utica Children's Museum was founded on August 1, 1963 and is housed in a historic building located in the heart of Utica's downtown Bagg's Square district. The Museum offers approximately 60 exhibits and experiences throughout four floors of mostly interactive exhibits play space and is a hands-on, interactive museum.
The museum was originally called the "Junior Museum of Oneida County" and was housed in the basement of the Utica Public Library. In 1979 the Museum moved to its current location at 311 Main Street. It was moved several times before finding its current home in the John C. Hieber Building, a historic commercial building listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
