Children’s Museums show our youngest citizens that they are valued and important. We create a space for connection, exploration, cultural awareness, and growth. We foster positive social experiences, which overflow into everyday life and help children build strong, healthy relationships with others and with their community.
A New Look

Q: How are the Museum and ICAN connected?
The Family Resource Center is a central hub where children, youth, and families across the region can access comprehensive services in a supportive, strengths-based, engaging, and client-centered environment. By combining a family-friendly Children's Museum and a fully functional social service hub, both organizations can increase access to services for children, youth, and families needing support while destigmatizing education, health, mental health, and behavioral health services.
