With the Pop-Up shop campaign underway, the physical need for expansion is clear, but it is only part of the story. Not only does the Baraboo Children’s Museum need expansion, Baraboo’s children need the expanded museum.We have worked to identify some critical impact areas where having a children’s museum would make a profound and enduring impact on children, their learning, and development in Baraboo and surrounding communities.
Currently, the Baraboo Children’s Museum provides rich play experiences and a dynamic learning environment with 5 innovative and interactive exhibits. As we plan toward the future, our desire for the Baraboo Children’s Museum is to offer 13 exhibit and programming areas–Agriculture, Circus, Fresh Mart Store/Kitchen, Trains, Building, Climbing structure, Art (Creation Station), Little Buddies (Birth-Age 2), Water Room, Music, Theater, STEM lab/Party Room, and Be With Me (tech free)) Click to see more!
All new exhibits will emphasize developmentally appropriate, open‐ended exploration, support formal learning, and help young children learn about themselves, their community, and their world through play.
We are asking for your support as we begin our next stage of the Baraboo Children’s Museum!
