In this difficult time, your support of the Museum is more important than ever.

The Museum celebrated its 28th anniversary this year, and what a year it’s been. The Museum had to close for four months this year due to the pandemic; even now, we’re only operating at 25% capacity. Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, we’ve been able to raise much needed revenue for our survival.

We still have exciting plans for the future. For the past two years we have been working with award-winning experts, including the nationally-renowned Boston Children’s Museum. Our vision includes a variety of new exhibits, building on our unique location here in the seaside village of Niantic. We are looking at a number of new programs and offerings to widen our reach.

We need your support now more than ever. Our future looks exciting and promising, but we need to get there first. The pandemic is still taking its toll on us all, especially children’s museums.

Even facing these unprecedented times, everyone at the Niantic Children’s Museum is working hard to carry out our mission: To encourage learning and spark imagination by engaging children and all families through creative and hands-on play in a safe and accessible learning environment.

With the help of your donations and with your enduring support, we will continue to sustain and improve the museum. Help us make sure the Museum is poised to enter the future, better and stronger than ever.

Please consider making a donation. No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.
