Mission Statement

Mission Statement To be a gathering place for children and families, where play inspires exploration, discovery, and problem solving. Vision Statement We envision a community shaped by lifelong learners, who provide innovative leadership inspired by creativity and diverse perspectives.


Our History
The Akron Children’s Museum was founded by a small group of young parents who, after visiting numerous children’s museums throughout the U.S. and querying their peers, determined that such an institution was indeed needed, and could serve Akron and the surrounding region well with Akron-centric, unique experiences. Their plans were set in motion in 2012 and 2013, when the founding board commissioned feasibility and market studies. In 2014 ACM received its nonprofit status from the IRS, added new board members and began fundraising to realize the vision. In 2015, a partnership with The City of Akron was forged with ACM’s Holiday Pop-Up Site at Lock 3. We officially opened our doors on November 25, 2016.
