About Us

Our Mission

Founded in 1996, WOW! Children’s Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing educational, interactive exhibits, programs, and activities for all children – bringing families together in a creative environment that sparks imagination, inspires learning through play, and supports school readiness.

What We Do

  • We Inspire Learning – Our hands-on science, art and cultural exhibits and programs get children learning in a fun and creative way.  We provide an opportunity to ask questions, experiment and apply lessons learned to real life.
  • We Enhance Education – It is important for children to become engaged in science education from a young age.  Our drop-in science programs make science accessible to children as young as 18 months!  For older children, we bring hands-on science education directly to the classroom, or provide it here through Museum field trips.
  • We Connect Community – WOW! is a place where parents can get out of the house, meet their neighbors and connect to the place we live.  By bringing in other community groups – musicians, artists, educators, and storytellers, we’re connecting families with the rich resources available in our community.
