The 'Sugar Hill Children's Museum of Art and Storytelling' is a playful wonderland for kids to explore and learn about the world through art. The museum targets children between the ages of three to eight, because they have identified this age group as, "the most likely to learn through the arts." In the museum, the exhibits currently feature pieces that recreate American community life starting in the 1930s and into the 1980s.

Other features in the children's museum include paintings by famous Harlem artists Jacob Lawrence and Romare Bearden. A mural by artist Saya Woolfalk and daughter Aya Mitchell, named 'The Pollen Catchers’ Color Mixing Machine' stretches over six walls. The unique children's museum is meant to keep both kids and their parents entertained, with paintings and artwork appropriately displayed at both eye levels.
