Acting on the principle that learning is a joy, the Children’s Museum of Phoenix’s mission is to engage the minds, muscles and imaginations of children and the grown-ups who care about them. With hands-on, interactive exhibits designed for children ages birth to 10, the Museum focuses on learning through play, with emphasis on early childhood education and school-readiness.
The Museum’s vision is to foster a joy of learning and to:
•Provide engaging projects, exhibits and programming for young children and their families;
•Educate parents and caregivers about child development and parenting techniques;
•Build cultural understanding, positive social interaction, and celebrate diversity; and
•Serve as a gateway to other cultural institutions and community programs.
