Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples

The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples (CMON) is a 38,000-square-foot museum for families located in the North Collier Regional Park in Naples, Florida.

It is one of the finest children’s museums in the United States and Collier County’s first family fun learning environment devoted exclusively to child’s play, the serious business of discovery.

Your family is sure to enjoy a visit to this worthwhile family attraction which is located approximately two hours south of Sarasota. Here is a link to some more things to do on your day trip to Naples.

CMON features several family fun exhibit galleries and thousands of interactive experiences.

The Museum also offers daily and weekly programs for hands on learning that sparks creativity and is a brain-building powerhouse fueled by STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math).

Kids, parents, and grandparents can visit foreign lands like Thailand, England, and Germany, become a farmer, engineer, or veterinarian, sit in an igloo, climb a giant banyan tree, and much more! Read the Children’s Museum of Naples featured blog article – click here
