EverWonder Children’s Museum cultivates a lifelong love-of-learning in children by encouraging them to think, inquire, and wonder about the world around them. We offer hands-on exhibits and programming to spark imagination in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.
EverWonder Children’s Museum, a 501(c)3 organization, was founded in January 2011 by a group of mothers who enjoyed bringing their children to other children’s museums and who wanted to create a similar experience closer to home for everyone in the surrounding communities to enjoy. For the first years of its life, EverWonder Children’s Museum existed as a mobile entity without a physical location. The Board of Directors and volunteers brought science and art programming to the community through the local library and various community events in an effort to fulfill their mission and create awareness of the organization. In April 2013, EverWonder Children’s Museum opened a physical location called The EverWonder Experience. This small museum space was packed with exciting hands-on exhibits and activities. The EverWonder Experience served over 6,000 visitors. In April of 2015, EverWonder Children’s Museum re-opened in our current location. This new larger space enables us to provide additional exhibits and activities as well as dedicated space for birthday parties and field trips.
We will be celebrating Earth Day with a recycled bird feeder craft!
