The Museum envisions a community that is increasingly vibrant, engaged, and resilient because it recognizes and develops the potential of its children.
Inspire, connect, and strengthen our community by enriching the lives of our children today and expanding their capacity to shape their future.
Engage families, caregivers, and teachers with children eight years and under in active play and learning experiences and environments that spark their curiosity, explore their interests, foster their potential and nourish a sense of belonging.
