Children’s museums stimulate curiosity, creativity and learning through fun, interactive exhibits and programs for children, families and school groups.
We believe that all children deserve respect and the opportunity to learn. Families are important as children’s first teachers and as their partners in learning.
Our programs and participatory exhibits will be designed specifically to encourage interaction and inquiry, as well as participation from the entire family. Learning occurs in a variety of ways, and experiential learning is essential for proper brain development.
We know that communities are enriched when diverse groups work creatively together to educate our children. We will actively partner with social service agencies, public schools, service clubs, public libraries, and other community organizations to bring interactive education and fun, hands-on learning experiences to the community.
Celebrate with these Special events!
