Description

About KID Museum

KID Museum aspires to create a world-class, “next generation” museum – a dynamic hub for informal learning that inspires and empowers all kids to invent the future with creativity and compassion.


We define our work around three core activities:

  1. Deliver high-quality youth programs designed to build skills and interest in STEM, arts and culture through maker-based learning 
  2. Serve as a catalyst for change in the education system
  3. Provide a unique community gathering place to promote intergenerational learning


In October 2014, KID Museum opened its doors at the current 7,500 square foot space, establishing a living prototype for the museum. KID Museum transformed the space into a “makerspace” for kids and families, featuring a fab lab (3D printing), a woodshop, an electronics studio, a textiles studio and a digital media lab. Today, the museum serves more than 55,000 people annually through school and group visits, weekend workshops, open explore activities, after-school programs, off-site programs, camps, and special events. Plans are currently underway to locate a permanent home in the area.
