We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

At the Santa Fe Children's Museum, happy children are our business. You are an important part of the Museum family, and your support of these programs helps bring smiles:

Our Outdoor Garden- Play space allows families to have a safe place to relax, play and learn together. Museum favorites such as the bubbles and magnet table have been moved outside and are sanitized between families.

Virtual Field Trips- Provide interactive, bilingual science programs that kids engage with from home. 1,926 schoolchildren have experienced this STEM education since March.

Grab-and-Go Kits- including bilingual lessons and materials have been distributed to 3,200 families without internet access. By the end of the school year, 50,000 STEM, Arts, and Early Childhood kits will be shared in rural and underserved communities.

Our COVID-Safe Camps combine art, science and community into a tapestry of fun, while providing vital social and emotional support for kids ages 3-10. Currently, 78% of students are children of essential workers who receive scholarships.

Our Community Garden helps combat food insecurity, providing more than 1,000 pounds of organic produce to local families and homeless shelters each year.

We are so appreciative, and want to thank you for your support of the Museum!
