Where Imagination Comes Alive . . . Through Generosity!

As a non-profit organization, we open our doors each day because of generous support from individuals, corporations and foundations. 

The Seattle Children's Museum depends on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations to bring imagination alive for our visitors.  We open our doors 357 days a year providing a place for families to play, learn and explore together.  

We are located on the Seattle Center campus, however we are a separate 501c3 organization.  Our budget relies on approximately 40% in contributions that span from individual giving, grants and a wide variety of in-kind donations of supplies and services.

It is because of those who give that we are able to:

  • Open our doors free of charge to low-income families
  • Welcome local artists and performers in to the Museum
  • Provide a safe, clean and educational place for children ages 10 months to 10 years and their families
