Introducing the wonder of creativity can change a child’s life. By encouraging children to tap into their natural curiosity, we help transform who they are, how they see things and set them on the path to be more successful adults.

We believe all children should have the opportunity to think, play and create - which is why 30% of our visitors come for free through our community access programs: free Title 1 School Visits, Check Out The New Children's Museum library program, Blue Star Museums, Mass Creativity Day, Target Free Second Sundays and our pARTners in Creativity enrichment program. Click here to learn how to help us continue to inspire creativity.
