A Place for Families to be Together

Through your generosity, the Museum is able to provide a place for thousands of children and their families to come to every year to play, learn and spend time laughing and just being together. What a gift in these hectic overscheduled days – with your help, the Museum is proud to be able to provide a place for this to happen.

Donors like you helped us raise over $60,000 last year.

More Than Just Four Walls

Located directly on Main Street in Niantic, the Children’s Museum provides a vibrant venue for residents as well as visitors. We enjoy strong community and regional partnerships that allow us to enhance visitor experiences. However, the museum is much more than just four walls.

We deliver programs to teachers and students in schools throughout southeastern Connecticut. We provide grant programing in priority school districts presenting an educational opportunity for students of these schools that, without the museum, would not exist. Your continuing generous support makes all of this possible.

To a Bright, New Future!

This year is a turning point for the future, we are currently working with the Boston Children’s Museum to re-imagine and grow our beloved Museum. We hope you join us in making a lasting impact on the growing minds in this community for generations to come.

We look forward to seeing you under the sea on Friday, September 9th!
