Description:The Santa Cruz Children’s Museum of Discovery will be: An extraordinary interactive learning environment where everyone explores the wonders of Santa Cruz County.

We will be a popular destination for local youth, their parents and teachers in the Monterey Bay area. Additionally, the museum will be renowned as an attraction for visitors to the area.

We will utilize cutting edge educational methodologies to maximize the learning opportunities for the children, and will incorporate the feedback from our constituents so that we continually evolve and respond to new ideas.

Our permanency will be guaranteed by strong community support and sound financial planning through grants and donations, events and programs, combined with high volumes of visitors through our doors.

We will measure our success by the number of visitors we impact every year, by the awards and other forms of recognition we get among children's museums, and by the pride that the community has in that which we bring to the children of Santa Cruz County.

Mission: The Santa Cruz Children’s Museum of Discovery will delight, inspire and challenge by providing an exciting and interactive learning environment in which children can explore the wonders of Santa Cruz County.
