As a non-profit organization, 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 moved to our current location at the heart of the Seattle Center in 1986, creating new exhibits along the way. In 1995, a capital campaign allowed us to expand to the 22,000 sq feet that we fill today.
Since those renovations were completed, over 3.2 million guests have played, pushed, opened and closed, dropped, rolled, picked up, put down, built, crawled into, peeked around, and simply loved the Museum. It is no surprise that it shows the signs of the wear and tear. Below is a list of immediate wishes for the Museum and the price tag. Big and small, every donation helps us continue to provide the joy of discovery to children and their families.
