Our goal is to provide unique and dynamic experiences that can enrich the lives of children and families. To that end we continue to work to make the museum a better and more exciting experience for our families, school groups, and program participants.
We know you have lots of choices of whom to support, but we hope you will choose to make a difference in the lives of the children of Southeastern Connecticut. The 35,000 children who visit the museum each year or experience our programming onsite or through our partnership with the schools, deserve the very best that we can offer, and you are our key to that success.Donate Now!
