Chico Children’s Museum is in the developmental/fund-raising stage. They are members of the Association of Children’s Museums and are in partnership with North Valley Community Foundation. As members of the Association of Children’s Museums, they have access to the newest and most exciting exhibits traveling across the globe. With the help of donors, they will offer them HERE IN CHICO!
Chico Children’s Museum believes the cure for boredom is curiosity! They will offer a collection of permanent and rotating hands-on exhibits, studios, and galleries. The exhibits will be designed to serve as informal educational experiences, where children learn by manipulating and touching their surroundings. Their exhibits and experiences will be selected by experts in child development and the arts, to maximize the educational and explorative interaction with each exhibit. CCM hopes to develop partnerships with other museums in the area to boost community involvement in science, nature and history.
The Chico Children’s Museum’s mission is to cultivate a lifelong love of learning through hands-on, minds-on, experiences that celebrate curiosity, connect families and cultivate a sense of unity within the community.
