Support Our Resilience
The COVID-19 crisis has put financial strain on Minnesota Children’s Museum. We are a nonprofit organization that relies on ticket sales, membership income and other sources of funds to survive. The museum temporarily closed during our busiest season, and we urgently need financial support.
Why Support Us
We have been a vital resource in our community since 1981, and with your help we will continue to fill a critical need for children. Your contribution builds our resilience.
Play is important – it builds bodies and brains while reducing stress and inspiring joy. With your gift to our Resiliency Campaign, we will continue to bring resources to parents during this challenging time, and be in the best position possible for that wonderful day when we can open our doors and hear joy throughout the museum.
We know many families are struggling financially during this crisis, but together we will continue to bring joy and playful learning to families and children in our community.
A Message from Our President
We need your help. The museum’s closure puts us in a dire financial situation. This closure comes during our busiest season, making the impact all the more severe.
We have taken immediate steps to put the organization in the best position to be able to re-open when it’s safe to do so. These measures have been heartbreaking and there are no guarantees it will be enough without support from our community.
If you’re able, please help us preserve the museum. We remain hopeful that together we can continue sparking children’s learning through play for many more years to come.
Support Our Resiliency!
Recurring donations will occur for one year.
Once the anniversary of the first installment approaches, we will contact you about renewing your gift.
Minnesota Children’s Museum helps make Minnesota a vibrant community where people want to play, live and work.
