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 social/emotional development in Baraboo and surrounding communities.  Click to read more

Having a children’s museum in Baraboo would not only benefit our community, but it is something that is desired by the parents of the area’s smallest residents. There is a growing demand for effective learning opportunities for young children, and growing evidence that children’s museums provide those opportunities. The children of Sauk County and beyond deserve a museum that can serve their growing educational and developmental needs now and well into the future. It’s time for the Baraboo Children’s Museum (BCM) to expand and open in a permanent location! 
.
The desire of BCM is to expand into a 9,000 square foot space in the Badger Building on the East side of town as soon as possible after the closing of our Pop-Up Shop. This space was previously Darrow’s, as well as the Habitat for Humanity Restore. 
.
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!

Thank you for helping make the Baraboo Children’s Museum a reality!
