To provide a unique hands-on environment where children explore, investigate, create, and discover.
Now more than ever the formation of a child’s academic, social, and problem solving skills are critical for lifetime success. We know with the help of advancements made in pediatric neuroscience the conditions necessary for building a better brain. Beginning with a tiny spark in infancy, a child’s brain develops through experience, and direct interaction with her environment; in a word, through play. The Galveston Children’s Museum’s mission is to fuel that spark, to respect each child’s unique identity and give them permission to be playful, curious, creative, inspired and inspiring; people who have the ability to think outside the box, and know they can meet challenges and overcome them.
