The Children's Creativity Museum offers hands-on, multimedia arts and technology experiences designed to build creative confidence in children ages 2-12. Our mission is to nurture creativity and collaboration in all children and families. We believe that creative expression, innovation, and critical thinking are core to fostering the next generation.

We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3), community-based organization. Our Tax ID is 94-3178735. 


Our educational approach encourages visitors to imagine, create, and share. We move from the conventional approach of play to one of invention, promoting collaboration over independence and engagement over isolation. 


We are located in one of the world’s most culturally diverse and creative cities. Children and families — from all backgrounds, communities, and income levels — have the opportunity to work side by side to create a dynamic and creative learning environment. This provides an ideal platform for collaboration, inclusion, and the celebration of each person’s unique talents.
