Knock Knock Children’s Museum opened August 22, 2017 as an inclusive gathering place where families and children of all backgrounds and experiences can interact and learn through play. The 26,000-square-foot facility sits atop Knock Knock Hill overlooking City-Brooks Community Park in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Its prime location on six acres of existing parkland provides access to all communities within Baton Rouge and the surrounding nine-parish area.
Knock Knock Children’s Museum is filled with hands-on, fun-filled interactive exhibits called “Learning Zones.” Anchored in research and evidence-based practices addressing all areas of development, our Learning Zones are designed to create teachable moments that will connect children’s every day experiences to learning. Knock Knock’s focus is on the development of the whole child with the goal of increasing early literacy skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) while expanding knowledge and raising interest in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) subjects and careers.
- Serves children, birth through age 8, and their families;
- Provides high-quality early learning experiences for an expanding population of children living in under-resourced environments and poverty;
- Helps close the knowledge and early childhood education gap.
