Children’s museums are institutions committed to serving the needs and interests of children by providing exhibits and programs that stimulate curiosity and motivate learning. Children’s museums bring children and families together in a new kind of Town Square, where play inspires lifelong learning. Outreach programs for at-risk and under-served youth, school partnerships, and parent resource programs in early childhood are just some of the ways children’s museums serve families in their communities.
The Children’s Museum of Green Bay is a 501 c 3 community funded, visitor-supported organization. We rely on admission and membership pricing to support our annual operating costs. Please allow us to continue to make a difference in the lives of young children each year with a gift to the museum.
We are an organization where “children play to learn and adults learn to play.” We encourage families to interact together in our space and share their experience. As a community funded, visitor supported organization, we depend on our admission pricing to allow us to continue to offer top-notch educational exhibit galleries.
The Children’s Museum of Green Bay does not accept ACM Memberships. Although if you have a membership to another Wisconsin Children’s Museum show us your valid pass and you receive $3 off.
