Supporting Education and Community

We are a museum on a mission. With your support, we have welcomed over 5 million visitors in the last 25 years. We've served 711,000 students through our education outreach across the country. And we've provided free and reduced admissions to 683,000 visitors. Join us as we continue to inspire all children to explore, innovate, create and play.
