Give back and move learning forward. We depend on the generosity of our community to help Explore & More Children’s Museum achieve its mission of helping every child dream, imagine, invent and do. Over 40% of Explore & More’s revenues come from individuals, corporations, foundations and government grants. And every single donation—including time, services and money—makes a difference for our programs, exhibits and activities.

You can help in so many ways.
