Our Green Trail

Our Green Trail

Explore our green building! Boston Children's Museum is the first LEED certified museum in Boston and one of only a handful of Green museums across the country (but those numbers are growing!). The Our Green Trail exhibit, sponsored by Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation, highlights the aspects of the Museum’s building and grounds that make it such an environmentally-friendly place. Throughout the Museum you will find interactive Our Green Trail stations that tell you more about the 6,000 square foot green roof, recycling efforts, low-flow toilets, lighting conservation and more. And each station suggests some things you can try to make your house, your community and our world a greener place.
