Children's Museum of Eastern Oregon

400 South Main Street
Pendleton, OR 97801


Mission Statement:

The Children's Museum of Eastern Oregon will provide children of all ages with opportunities for educational exploration and development through interactive exhibits and play.

About Us:

The Children's Museum of Eastern Oregon is a not-for-profit play place, dedicated to offering an on-going and wide range of theme-oriented, hands-on educational exhibits and activities for children of all ages. The Children's Museum is located on Main Street in downtown Pendleton.

As the only children’s museum in all of Eastern Oregon, CMEO has a high impact on many children and families. With over 10,900 visitors a year and over 130 memberships, many families, childcare providers, and educators in our community and throughout the region enjoy and depend on our museum to provide them with a safe, fun and educational place to enjoy with their children. In 2009, CMEO was rated by residents in Eastern Oregon, the best museum in the East Oregonian's "Best of Eastern Oregonian" pole.

In rural Eastern Oregon, there is a lack of family oriented places for educational development and interactive play that are more commonly found in urban areas. In addition, due to school cuts, many enrichment activities have been eliminated from our region’s school districts. As the only facility of its kind in our region, CMEO bridges this gap through our educational activities, events and exhibits.
