We believe in the Power of Play!
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission of providing a safe and engaging environment where young children can learn through the power of play and interact with their caregivers. We started out as a “museum without walls” with a few traveling exhibits. In the summer of 2017, we traveled to over 30 fairs, festivals, and events. In November 2017, we opened our first location in the upper level of Valley West Mall with a few small exhibits. In March 2019, we closed our first location and opened up in the lower level of the mall with triple the exhibit space!! Since we opened in 2017, we have welcomed over 20,000 visitors to our museum. Stop by today and check us out!
