The National Children's Museum is set to open in Dec. 14 at National Harbor.
It operated as the Capitol Children's Museum for 30 years in the District. The new 18,000-square-foot space hopes to accommodate 480,000 kids and families per year.
The museum will include two main exhibit areas, including a "Sesame Street"-themed spot for kids age three and younger. The museum announced a partnership last year with the TV show's creators to give Elmo and his friends a museum home.
"Our World," an area for older kids, will show visitors the "responsibilities and rewards of both global and community citizenship," museum planners said.
Visitors will also find a 130-seat theater. The museum will also offer field trips and birthday packages.
Admission will cost $10 per person, with babies age one or younger admitted free.
Museum memberships will go on sale Saturday, Oct. 6 at JumpOFF!, the museum's free outdoor jump-roping festival to be held outside the new museum space from noon to 4 p.m.
