GRCM is set to open late 2024. But we're more than a building! Your donation will support programming initiatives and access to multisensory, interactive, dynamic play experiences even BEFORE we open our doors! Donate today to support: 

   ▪ Outreach that brings museum programming to parks, festivals, schools, and other community venues.

   ▪ Field Trips that provide learning experiences rooted in play and exploration.

   ▪ Workshops that engage young minds and bring community together through shared traditions, stories, and hobbies.

   ▪ Community Spaces that support co-learning, group gatherings, birthdays, corporate outings, and more!

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

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 and increase the value of our local economies.

With 8 different exhibit galleries, program rooms, wellness rooms, a teaching kitchen, and a rooftop deck, Great River Children's Museum will offer a unique experience to visitors every time they stop in. 

Our dynamic exhibits include: Headwaters,  Climber to the Clouds, Community Connections, Tinker Workshop, Great Explorations, Outdoor Adventures, Everyday Engineering, and Great Big River!

Fly-through GRCM!
