WOW! Children’s Museum is committed to making the Museum accessible to ALL children in our community, regardless of financial constraints.Explore
WOW! Children’s Museum has been a gathering place for families for 20 years, helping children play, learn and imagine! Our interactive exhibits help children learn through play, building important skills such as fine and gross motor skills, socialization skills, and literacy skills. The learning doesn’t stop at our walls either- we bring hands-on science lessons to local preschools and elementary schools, helping children develop early science literacy skills.
WOW! is also committed to being inclusive to all families in our community. Children in financial need qualify for our low-cost Scholarship Membership, allowing them to access the Museum year round. Local schools with large percentages of children on the free and reduced lunch program qualify for discounts on field trips and science classes. Lastly, children with autism and sensory processing disorders are welcomed at our Sensory Friendly Playtimes programs, where we adapt exhibits and provide on-site therapists to allow for a more comfortable Museum experience.
Our exhibits and programming take a lot of resources to design and create, and admission fees only cover 65% of WOW! Children’s Museum’s expenses. As a 501(c)3 non-profit, WOW! Children’s Museum relies on the generous support of our community to keep our doors open to local families. There are a variety of ways to support WOW! Children’s Museum with time, money, or supplies.
If you’re interested in making an impact on local children in your community, consider supporting WOW! Children’s Museum. A donation of just ten dollars provides a Museum visit for a child in need. There are even easy ways to support WOW! Children’s Museum at no cost to you, like participating in our Amazon Smile program! And if you’re a Member who would like to make a bigger impact, consider becoming an Imagination Patron, where your tax-deductible donation helps the Museum and gives you great benefits!
Businesses- if you’re looking to reach new customers, considering partnering with WOW! Children’s Museum! With over 75,000 visitors last year, WOW! is one of the most highly attended Museums in Boulder County. Exhibit and event sponsorships help support the Museum’s work in our community, and help businesses reach new customers. Businesses can sponsor existing exhibits, work with WOW! to guide new exhibits, provide a Free Day for local families, or support our fundraising events.
WOW! believes in the power of play, but we can’t do it alone. We need your support to expand imaginations, inspire learning, and support educators. If you’re interested in supporting the work of WOW! Children’s Museum, please contact Darcy Morel, Development Director.
