Mission Statement

Longview World of Wonders inspires a life long love of learning by giving children the opportunity to imagine, create, and explore in a hands-on educational environment.

Description

Longview World of Wonders started with a dream much like many civic enhancement projects seen throughout Longview. During 2011, officers and committees started fundraising efforts to fund a home for LongviewWOW. These efforts moved forward while volunteers expanded the Museum without Walls initiative. In early 2013, the former Texas Furniture building at 112 E. Tyler in Longview was purchased and the dream of a museum WITH walls advanced one step closer.

In the first part of 2016, Phase I of exhibits went into fabrication and installation. These first six permanent exhibits include Build-It!, Build-It! Junior, Invention Garage, The Park presented by the Johnson Foundation, The Factory presented by Eastman Credit Union, and The Market presented by the Junior League of Longview. Our Grand Opening occurred on August 13, 2016!

Phase II of exhibits are currently in the design phase. Our goal is to have Phase II completed in early 2017. Our biggest obstacle is funding. Our Capital Campaign is still active until our goal is reached to finish Phase II.

We are excited to be open on a regular basis and will have an engaging mixture of permanent, rotating and traveling exhibits. Please check our website frequently to see what is new and currently happening.
