Mission and History:

The mission of Kidspace Children's Museum is to nurture the potential of all children through kid-driven experiences, inspiring them to become joyful, active learners.

To help us achieve this, we work by the following core values:

Respect—We respect our guests by asking their opinions and listening. We also respect our guests and embrace diversity.
Integrity—We do what we said we will do even when it is not the easy thing to do. We want to be transparent with our finances so our investors know how they are making a difference.
Safety—The safety of our guests comes first. We have a safe environment where young minds of all ages can explore, learn, and have fun.
Experiential Learning—Education is the core of who we are. We believe that when learning becomes fun, the learner does so willingly.

An incredible seed bed of learning and discovery, the purpose of a children’s museum is to inspire children to learn and grow, equip parents and teachers, and to be a safe place where learners of all abilities can do so at their own pace and focus on topics of interest to them. This is often referred to as “Free Range Learning.” What makes us different from a school is our approach to informal education. We believe in giving our guests hands-on experiences that are relevant and inspiring.

In Dr. Howard Gardner’s book, Intelligence Reframed: Multiple Intelligences for the 21st Century, he points out the value of children’s museums in helping a child discover their learning style. Kidspace provides a learning environment filled with the wonder and joy of the natural world.
