About us

The Museum welcomes children and adults of all backgrounds and from all communities. Its focus is on serving southern New England children, ages 1 to 11, and the adults who care for them by:
  • Presenting hands-on, play-based exhibits and programs that explore arts, culture and science, technology, engineering and math.
  • Fostering children’s cognitive, social, emotional and physical development.
  • Embracing a wide range of abilities, learning styles and forms of creative expression.
  • Creating safe and welcoming environments in which visitors and staff share with and learn from one another.
  • Being accessible and responsive to all families – culturally, physically and economically.
  • Working in partnership with other organizations to meet the needs of children and families.
  • Increasing awareness and knowledge of the ways in which children and families learn.
