Walk into the Museum and you can watch magic. Every time children giggle as they look into the fun-house mirrors, become focused on the trains or building a Lego castle, or entranced by exploring a town that is their own size – you’ll see it. You have the power to continue this magic with your tax-deductible donation to the Utica Children’s Museum. With the help of our community, we have been providing exciting, hands-on, play-based learning for over fifty years.

Through the support of generous donors like you we have been able to:

  • Welcome Sophie’s Café and the UC Hockey locker room to our first floor Main Street; watch for Davidson Chevrolet, Kids’ Clinic, and a new dental office coming soon
  • Run weekly arts and crafts programs
  • Give away a free book to every young visitor
  • Expand Perios World, a series of games and activities enlivened by characters based on the elements of the periodic table
  • Offer free admission to teachers
  • Offer reduced price admission to veterans and their families
  • Participate in Museums for All, offering $1 admission to families receiving public assistance.

The future is bright, and stretches as far as the rainbow; we have plans for new exhibits including a sensory exploration zone, a miniature golf game featuring the laws of physics, and many more hand-on activities and programs!  But we can on do this only with your support. Your donation will have a real, lasting impact in the lives of the children in our area. Please make your financial contribution today.
