Founded May 1985
We offer unique, sustainable, and dynamic learning opportunities for children of all ages through year-round interactive exhibits, programming, and community outreach. We encourage and facilitate the exploration of the sciences, arts, and humanities and the development of positive learning experiences for people of all ages. We also work to respond to community needs through partnerships with regional schools and community-based organizations, pushing for the development of strong and healthy families.
The Children’s Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit run by a dedicated staff and overseen by a board of directors, assisted largely by the support of volunteers. Open year-round to all, the museum primarily draws visitors from the ten surrounding counties. We have sponsored an Art and Science Center since 1996 to serve the region, and have resided at our permanent physical location in Bloomsburg since 2002. We have also developed traveling hands-on museum exhibits that serve 17 school districts in the 5-county Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit area.
