Support Great River Children's Museum.

Our mission is to shine a bright light on the power of play to spark children's learning,  strengthen families, and build community connections.


Over $8million has been pledged toward construction costs, exhibit design, fabrication, and installation. Your dollars have an immediate and direct impact on children and families now as we create and pilot programs and camps, host pop-up exhibit experiences at libraries throughout the Central Minnesota region, and connect with community through Play Explore and Learn Labs. 

Please join us, and together we will develop a place where every child and their caring adults can create, explore, discover and be inspired through the extraordinary power of play!  In the process, the museum will serve as a life source to bring communities together again and increase the value of our local economies.

The museum’s Board of Directors is working with experienced museum planners, architects, and exhibit designers to create a space that celebrates the rich, natural elements  of Central Minnesota. With 9 different exhibit galleries, program rooms, wellness rooms, a teaching kitchen, and a rooftop deck, the children's museum will offer a unique experience to visitors every time they stop in. The dynamic exhibits and environments explore rivers, cultures, woods, and clouds.

Great River Children’s Museum is a registered nonprofit organization and a member of the Association of Children’s Museums.
