Impact & Method

Why the Children's Museum is Important to Our Community

Utica Children's Museum Mobile Museum
  • Investment in Our Future

    Children who love where they live and find opportunities to help them grow and thrive are the future of our region’s success.

  • Contemporary Town Square

    Children’s Museum acts as social meeting places where parents and children can interact with others and make new friends.

  • Workforce Development

    Exhibits that reflect college and career opportunities and introduce children to areas they may become passionate about are key.

  • Destination for Families

    Families who travel and value time together will seek out cities with assets like a children’s museum, making us a place worth visiting.

  • Community Pride

    A city that can boast having a children’s museum (AND a zoo, a hockey team, and more!) can count on its citizens being ambassadors for it.

  • Contribute to Regional Tourism

    We offer a kid-friendly outlet to help increase and enhance tourism for families traveling to us for sports, events, or just for fun.

  • Year-Round Experience

    We love our four seasons, but that means we need fun, quality indoor activities for our young folks to enjoy during the colder months.

  • Contributing to Great Childhoods

    Great childhoods are those that have safe places, enriched experiences, thriving public institutions, and community support surrounding them.
