Mission and Vision

Our mission is to cultivate creativity, curiosity and compassion to build a better world.

KID Museum is a new kind of museum serving children and families in the Washington, DC area. KID offers unique, maker experiences for elementary and middle school-aged children that integrate hands-on science, technology, engineering, art and math learning with an exploration of world cultures and global citizenship.

KID Museum’s current site at Davis Library in Bethesda, Maryland provides the community with programs and workshops on weekends and after school. It is a first step toward the museum’s vision of a larger, permanent home in Montgomery County, focused on empowering the next generation to invent the future with creativity and compassion.
