Set to open in 2015, the Westchester Children's Museum will offer exhibits that are designed to encourage imagination, play, and interactive learning.  Exhibit design professionals have been hard at work creating a unique learning space, one that reflects the particular interests of our children and our community.  The Campaign for the Westchester Children’s Museum is in the midst of a $10 million capital campaign to get the museum’s doors open in the next 24 months.  Supporting this campaign is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to create something of true lasting value for the thousands of children in the region.

MISSION

The Westchester Children's Museum will be a vibrant, interactive learning space providing children, families and school groups the opportunity to nurture curiosity, enhance knowledge and ignite imagination through creative hands-on exploration. The museum is committed to broadening knowledge of the arts, the environment, multiculturalism, and the local and global communities in an educational and recreational atmosphere.

This museum is a communitywide investment in our children. It will provide fundamental learning experiences and be an institution of exploration where children lead the process of discovery in an educational atmosphere while allowing us all to share in their experience of learning about the world around them.
— Hon. Janet DiFiore, Westchester County District Attorney
