The Des Moines Children’s Museum is a new local non-profit organization with the goal of opening the first children’s museum in the Des Moines metro.  Right now we are a “Museum Without Walls” taking traveling exhibits out to the community until we find our permanent home.



Please sign up for our newsletter so you’ll be in the know.

No information will be sold. Newsletters will mostly be quarterly; they’ll briefly let you know about events, happenings, and behind the scene work.

Our Mission:

The Des Moines Children’s Museum will provide a fun, safe, and educational environment for young children and their families to explore the arts, nature, and the world around them. We will provide hands-on exhibitions and programs to encourage a love of learning, and be a positive resource for parents, children, and the surrounding community.
