“Discovering the joys of learning, play and community”
Our mission is to build upon a child's natural sense of joy and discovery by cultivating habits of inquiry in the arts, sciences, and humanities. The museum's informal learning environment fosters interactions among children and families, and encourages active participation in the learning process through interactive exhibitions and programs. As an educational institution, we provide leadership on issues concerning children. Through its exhibits, programs, staffing, and governance, the museum recognizes and reflects our community's economic, ethnic, and cultural diversity. Among the many types of museums in the world today, children's museums stand alone in providing an environment distinctly different from other institutions. The Santa Fe Children's Museum is based on a simple idea: children learn by doing. As a compliment to classroom education, this museum provides an informal environment for children to use their hands and minds together. As a site for family outings, children and parents are brought together in the spirit of challenging play.
