    • Process

      The idea of opening a children’s museum in Sun Prairie was born in the spring of 2019 followed by visiting, researching and connecting with children’s museums around the midwest. The year ended with the creation of a Board of Directors and completing the process of establishing 501(c)(3) status.

    Collaboration and Connections

    • Community Involvement

      2020 is about bringing the community together to support our mission through fundraising events. The Board of Directors will continue to build partnerships, explore possible locations, create exhibits and develop programming. Find more details about our upcoming events.
