Mission Statement

The Betty Brinn Children's Museum is dedicated to providing interactive exhibits and educational resources that promote the healthy development of children in their formative years - from birth through age ten. The Museum experience encourages hands-on learning and the development of fundamental skills, self-esteem, and the ability to work with others. Caregivers use the Museum as a resource that provides information on early childhood brain development, learning styles, and effective parenting skills. The Museum maintains a strong commitment to providing access to all children and families in the community, including low-income and special needs families.

History

The Betty Brinn Children's Museum opened its doors on April 4, 1995, thanks to a grassroots effort begun by three Milwaukee women determined to create a place where families in Southeastern Wisconsin could learn and play together. Therese Binder, Susie Gruenberg and Julie Sattler-Rosene rallied community support to secure a location for the Museum and to raise the necessary funds. After six years of persistence and hard work, their hope for a children's museum finally came to fruition. The Museum has become a Milwaukee landmark and treasured educational organization for locals and visitors alike.
