A message from Museum Executive Director and Board President:

This is an incredibly exciting time for your expERIEnce Children’s Museum and all who benefit from our innovative programs and play experiences. The tremendous support of our donors, patrons and volunteers fueled our progress, and for that we offer heartfelt thanks. We have once again seen an intense year of growth with admissions reaching nearly 60,000 and annual memberships climbing to 1300 families.

Our education programs inside the museum and through community outreach reached more people than ever before. As an organization, we deepened our understanding about the value of purposeful play and continued to refine the way we engage parents and the community in this important cause.

Thank you for supporting the Children’s Museum and our mission to provide a safe, family-centered educational experience that inspires creativity, exploration and imagination through play, interactive exhibits and innovative programming.

“The children’s museum has always been one of our kids’ favorite places to go, not just to play and interact with other children, but to learn and explore. The staff and facility are phenomenal and we consider them like family.” -Heather Kloecker, museum member and mom of 3.
