About the Museum

Our Mission

The mission of The Children’s Museum is to enrich the lives of people in the region by fostering a lifelong love of learning through enjoyable interactive programs and exhibits that bring out the imagination of every child and the child in every visitor.


  • To provide hands-on, informal educational experiences to children of all ages
  • To extend educational outreach services to the region
  • To involve the community in all that we do
  • To seek and develop new resources to maintain museum activities and further our mission

Who Are We?

Founded May 1985

We work hard to offer unique, sustainable and dynamic learning opportunities for youth 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.

The Children’s Museum is a proud member of the following organizations and professional associations:
