Our mission is to "Ignite a Passion for Lifelong Learning through hands-on exploration." Hands-on play has proven to enhance cognitive development, thus we were created to provide a hands-on space for kids and to provide fun and interactive learning experiences and environments for children and their families. The museum provides opportunities for children to explore and discover their world through exhibits and programs in the areas of history/culture, science/technology, health/nutrition, and the visual and performing arts as well as a special emphasis in regional culture and industry.
20 years ago, the children of Great Falls Montana needed a place for them to come and enjoy productive, interactive, and educational activities year-round. A 501(c)3 status was applied for and granted. The Children’s Museum of Montana was opened in February of 1999 and now sees over 60,000 visitors a year. The mission remains the same- to ignite a passion for lifelong learning! While they are saving lives as a doctor in the Kid’s Clinic Hospital, learning about money in the Giant Springs Credit Union, or living on the homestead of the frontier; hands-on play is the goal and their own imagination is the only limitation! Without the kindness of our community, where would we be? Volunteers are considered to be real life super heroes to CMOM. Without them, we would not have nearly the same quality of play and education space within our walls. We are always in need of new help and fresh eyes.
