Support CMOM

When you become a Children’s Museum member or make a donation, you invest in the future。 As a nonprofit, 501(c) (3) institution, our membership and admission fees don’t cover our operating expenses。 We need your help! Your gift supports a valued community resource, lets under-resourced families enjoy a museum visit, and allows us to continue to create joyful environments and programs that promote fun and learning。
