camp scholarships:

When school is out for summer, children still need engaging experiences. We provide a high quality, STEAM-based curriculum full of hands-on learning all summer long. Through generous support, we provide this to our Have a Heart families at a drastically reduced rate.

project celebrate:

Many children in our community have the joy of at least one birthday party at our facility, and children in families struggling with basic needs should have the same opportunity.

The Museum’s Project Celebrate helps to provide one epic birthday party complete with themed decorations and party favors, admission for 30 birthday guests, a custom cake, delicious food, a birthday gift of a gift certificate to the Museum Store and an annual membership for the birthday child and family.

Every time you buy something at the Museum Toy Store, pay event admission, drop a coin into the vortex, or support the Museum in any other way, you are giving a child the power of play.
