KID Museum is our region’s pioneering experiential museum and educational makerspace. We foster the “Mind of a Maker” in kids and youth, empowering the next generation with the skills to invent the future.
We empower the next generation with the skills to invent the future.
We see the world as full of promise, potential, and possibility. We envision a bold future where there are pathways for every young person to engage in the hands-on, transformational learning and exploration that unlocks new opportunities. We work everyday to make this vision a reality.
We recognize that knowing how to ask the right questions is even more important than knowing the right answer.
We know that to go far, we must go together, and we help foster a spirit of community and collaboration in the young people we serve.
We believe in the power of creativity and innovation to make a positive impact on society.
We activate young people as difference makers who care about their world, their environment, and their neighbors.
At KID Museum, we see the world with the “mind of a maker”— a worldview that is guided by our values, curiosity, creativity, collaboration, and compassion. We foster this mindset in the kids and youth we serve, working with them to become empathetic and persistent problem-solvers, teammates, and changemakers.
