About KID Museum

KID Museum is the region’s pioneering experiential museum and educational makerspace. We foster the “Mind of a Maker,” empowering the next generation with the skills to invent the future.

Through hands-on programming for kids and youth (ages 4-14), we challenge young people to be active makers, not just passive observers. We design and deliver programs across the full continuum of learning for kids in pre-K through middle school, in partnership with educators and schools. Our weekend onsite programs, community events, and live, virtual sessions encourage families to learn and explore together.
