While working towards our goal of a permanent children’s museum, PPCM currently operates as a Mobile Museum. We are driven by our mission to serve all children & to provide extraordinary play-based learning experiences. We also provide In school field trips & Stories & S.T.E.A.M., which were started in 2016.
COS is one of only two cities, of the largest 50 cities in the U.S., without a children’s museum. Children’s museums rank only 2nd to zoos among similar attractions that attract diverse audiences & address the developmental needs of young children. We provide a fun & educational environment where families connect in meaningful ways & create a love of life-long learning. We intend to be an educational resource in COS.
Volunteers with expertise in fundraising, marketing, volunteer coordination, & handyman skills. A closed trailer and storage space.
13% of the population in Colorado Springs is age 0-9 years old. That is a little over 92k kids in El Paso County that deserves a children’s museum.
“The Children’s Museum provided our 72 second graders a very rich learning experience while we were building our knowledge about habitats. The activities were age appropriate and taught in an engaging and fun environment. Very well done!” — Debbie Lagergren, 2nd grade teacher at Academy Endeavor
