After 15 years of serving Colorado Springs-area children with extraordinary
play-based learning experiences via our mobile museum and our beloved
Noon Year’s Eve event, the Pikes Peak Children’s Museum (PPCM) is proud
to announce that it has secured a permanent location for a new
brick-and-mortar facility! We plan to open the doors to our new location at
2565 Airport Rd. in March 2021. Your donation will be directly supporting this
new museum and its exhibits, as well as sponsoring admission for children in
need. Donors will receive a digital certificate (a “brick” to signify how you’re
helping to build our new museum) to thank you for your donation that you are
free to share on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.
In an age of seemingly ubiquitous screens gobbling all our of children’s
attention spans, we aim to be the oasis from all of that. We want to see our
children playing and learning again. We believe that museums should spark
the imagination of our children and encourage them to be more creative,
empathetic, worldly, and to become life-long learners.
Of the largest 50 cities in the U.S., Colorado Springs is only one of two
without a children’s museum. Children’s museums rank 2nd only to zoos
among similar attractions that attract diverse audiences and address the
developmental needs of young children. Let’s not leave our children behind
— Colorado Springs-area children deserve to have these types of experiences
accessible to them too.
Funds and in-kind donations to help develop our brand new space into the
dream children’s museum our youth deserves.
Volunteers with expertise in fundraising, marketing, volunteer coordination
and handyman skills. We also have a running Amazon Wish List if anyone is
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
