Children and Family

Rochester is often, and rightfully, called a great place to raise a family.

With its stellar education system and schools, arts and cultural assets, museums, recreational options galore, and more, Rochester offers a tremendous volume and variety of great stuff for children and families all across the spectrums of age, background, and interest.

Some of the more notable children/family offerings in the city include the YMCA of Greater Rochester; the Monroe County Library System; Strong Museum of Play; the Rochester Museum and Science Center; The Seneca Park Zoo; and the Memorial Art Gallery.

A great resource for all these offerings is Genesee Valley Parent Magazine.
