Erie Children's Museum, ExpERIEnce


The expERIEnce Children’s Museum is celebrating it’s birthday with not one, but two events.

Starting the weekend off with an adults-only fundraiser, the annual Street Soiree is Saturday, Aug. 7, from 6-10 p.m. between 4th and 5th on French Street in front of the Children’s Museum. 

The museum has an exciting evening planned with local food, drinks of cheer and entertainment, plus light appetizers will be served from local restaurants. Featured drinks include the "Notorious BIG drink.”

Get jiggy to the music of Small Town Rollers and DJ Bill Page. Attendees will also have a chance to win an assortment of great baskets during an online auction. 

The museum will close at 1 p.m. on Saturday for the Street Soiree.

Tickets for the Street Soiree are $100 and are available through the museum’s website, A ticket purchase comes with entry to the event, unlimited food and drink, and live entertainment. 

The party will go on rain or shine, so break out grunge band t-shirts, scrunchie hair-tie and choker necklace and meet downtown for a night of fun.

Once the adults have their time, the museum is hosting a Birthday Bash on Aug. 8 from 1-5 p.m.

Celebrate the museum with face painting by Taradoodles, music by DJ Bill Page and a show from Danka ‘n Ollie of “Forever Friends,” plus enjoy free hotdogs, cake and refreshments. 

The Birthday Bash is included with admission, so join the party and play through the exhibits like it’s 1995.

For one weekend only, there is discounted admission and membership prices in honor of ECM’s 25th birthday. The museum is throwing back the admission and membership prices to 1995. Don’t miss out on visiting the museum on Aug. 7 and 8 for $3.50 admission and $25 membership.
