Camps at the Children's Museum are focused around hands-on exploration. Every single camp incorporates art and science and strives to build confidence in campers to experiment and follow their own curiosities.

Pop-Up Museum Series

The Children's Museum of Central Oregon relies heavily on the support and generosity of the community to bring our vision to life. Our Capital Campaign goal of $3 million ​will open our doors to the public and provide exciting and engaging experiences for the whole family.





​Math, Engineering, Science and Stuff! 

The M.E.S.S. Hall promises to be a place of exciting discoveries and guarantees a messy fun time.


Filled with science experiments and demonstrations, families get to immerse themselves in how the world around them works, and push the boundaries of discovery.




​Creative expression is not only fun but critical for developing self expression and confidence. The Children's Museum of Central Oregon plans to offer two artist studios: Clay Creations and Painting Palace.


Clay Creations gives kiddos the chance to work their fine motor skills and experiment with clay as they create a masterpiece.


Painting Palace is every kid's (and adult's) dream... paint on absolutley anything! Walls, toys, the sky is the limit!



Dress up and free play by day, performance by night!


The ultimate stage for creating your very own show... change your setting, find your costumes and grab your friends to direct or perform in your very own show.


The theater space would be available for more formal performances during the evenings.







The Children's Museum of Central Oregon plans on having several party rooms. Celebrate your little one's birthday while enjoying full access to the Museum and all it has to offer for you and your guests!



The Children's Museum is working on building partnerships with other groups in the community. Together we plan on developing programming and creating exciting and enriching experiences.
