WOW! Children’s Museum is an excellent resource for memorable field trips and outside-the-classroom learning. Field trips give local school children an opportunity to learn through play and explore the world around them in a fun, unique, and educational environment. We welcome visiting groups from preschools, elementary schools, community groups, after school programs and childcare centers. We support learning by providing unique hands-on experiences that encourage imagination, curiosity, and questioning. In our informal environment, children can delve into a variety of diverse hands-on exhibits from setting sail on a pirate ship to taking on the role of a health professional at the health clinic to putting on a performance on the stage. Adult supervisors are encouraged to actively engage and play with children at each exhibit space.
WOW! believes in the power of play. The social and cognitive skills learned at a very young age lay the foundation for acquiring important skills later in life. Our interactive, hands-on exhibits allow children to explore, create, inquire, and discover, helping them develop critical thinking, problem-solving and physical skills. Children and families from throughout Colorado benefit from the Museum’s rich learning environment, which helps children develop critical foundational skills in an informal educational setting. WOW! plays a critical role in our community by providing informal play experiences in a safe and educational environment. Within our Museum walls, children explore exhibits about a variety of subjects, including STEM, art, music, dance, theater and practical life. Our exhibits are designed to stimulate healthy child development and to be engaging to children and families. The majority of the Museum’s exhibits are created, designed and built in our onsite workshop. Our design process allows us to gather valuable feedback from visitors to create exhibits that engage children and allow them to learn while doing. With exhibits based on bubbles, light and sound, and wind, as well as an art studio, health clinic, grocery store, and bank, the Museum is full of ways for kids to explore, discover and imagine!
WOW!’s Education staff creates and delivers classes for our Science Field Trip option. Our educational classes complement Colorado Public School curriculum for Elementary Science, and are delivered at the Museum during a Science Field Trip. WOW!’s Science Field Trips are available to children as young as three years old to supplement an often overlooked subject area for toddlers. During a Science Field Trip, students explore grade-appropriate science concepts in an inquiry-based environment that provides opportunities to practice math, science, and literacy process skills.
We help make memories! We connect children to caregivers, families to families, and people to the place we live. By working with local musicians, artists, educators, and storytellers, we’re connecting children with the rich resources available in our community, and helping teach them about their world.
